93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January/February 2010

($85; from a 100-year-old planting of a mutation of malbec, aged 16 months in all new French oak) Bright ruby-red. An essence of malbec on the nose: blackberry, blueberry, boysenberry, pepper, licorice, smoke and minerals. Then wonderfully silky and light on its feet, conveying an impression of perfectly integrated acidity. Really resounds on the palate and aftertaste without leaving any sensation of weight. Finishes with firm tannic spine and a lingering note of licorice pastille.

Malbec

The Malbec grape may have originated in southwest France, where it still is grown under the name Cot. However, the grape's international profile has surged not because of what's going on in France, but rather because of current trends in Argentina.
