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

($16) Medium ruby. Slightly high-toned aromas of blackberry, licorice and crushed pepper show a lightly roasted quality that is enticing. Rich, intense and seamless, with a penetrating sweetness to the black fruit and smoked meat flavors. This, too, is impressively deep for the price. Finishes rich and long, with sweet tannins and a note of roasted chestnut.

This already-full-bodied malbec opens w a blast of dark fruit aroma and even before having a chance to breath, it offers a welcoming depth and sillky pluminess with just the tiniest hint of astringency. At 3y it is fully drinkable right now--with a blue cheese tart to begin or as a respectful dance partner to a roast duck pizza. I am sure that it will even more pleasing in the next year or three--if we can keep it that long! ;)

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.
