87 Points | International Wine Cellar , January/February 2009

($50; a blend of 40% malbec and 20% each cabernet sauvignon, merlot and bonarda, aged for 18 months in new French oak) Bright medium ruby. Musky, slightly roasted aromas of black raspberry, plum, truffle, mocha, chocolate and licorice. Rich and sweet but with dried fruit, raisin, herb and menthol notes suggesting a wide range of fruit ripeness. Complicated by a smoky, gamey quality but ultimately a bit lacking in verve. The dusty tannins turned drier with air.
