($200; for a magnum; a blend of 85% malbec, 10% bonarda and 5% torrontes) Bright, saturated ruby. The nose shows a nearly porty ripeness to the aromas of black cherry, blackberry, licorice and violet. Lush, creamy and sweet, with a captivating high-toned character giving it great early sex appeal. Wonderfully fat and sweet wine with a very long, broad, mouthcoating finish, thoroughly resolved tannins and a total absence of rough edges. A big, bold wine that was bottled entirely in magnums (just 450 were made), and yet I'd drink this in the near to mid term rather than burying it in the cellar. (Vine Connections, Sausalito, CA)
