94(+?) Points | International Wine Cellar , January/February 2010

Then sweet, creamy and suave on the palate, more sappy and less open-knit than the Argentino malbec but utterly seamless nevertheless. Very long and firmly tannic on the aftertaste. This wonderfully plump, deep, elegantly styled wine showed even stronger fruit, and a slightly liqueur-like chocolatey ripeness, after 48 hours in the recorked bottle. (Winebow, Inc., New York, NY)
