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.

Great flavors on opening. Black fruits. Nice balance. Aroma dies too quickly.
loads of promise

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! ;)
very nice

I found this Malbec to be an excellent, full bodied wine. Very pleasant aftertaste. Fruity, with a hint of spice/peppar. I highly recommend this wine.

This was a terrific purchase especially for the price (under $15/bottle) This wine went from good to very, very good when given sufficient time to breathe.

This was an outstanding wine that I found while visiting Seattle of all places. Simply a treat and enjoyed sharing with good friends. Full, rich and very smooth.

This one is a bit heavy. Good with beef or lamb. Flavors are ok.
dissappointed

Unforunately this was a dissapointing experience. Not only did I have to wait over two months to get the wine (I know you said it was because of the hot weather, but there are ways to safely ship wine, Like a local merchant does (cools the wine, packs in styrofoam, and ships ups or fedex) I was even mor disappointed when I tasted the wine. It was not bad, but I didn't enjoy it as much as I do a Terazzas, or Los Almos (not even the reserve) that I buy locally for $10 a bottle plus a 10% discount on a case....a bit dissappointing. As an aside, your policy of charging customers as soon as the order is submitted, rather tha when the order is shipped (like most respected on line merchants, is a bit of a put off.

Undrinkably dense and primary. Some promising aromatics hint at a nice future in the far distance. Far too early to rate.

About Argentina

Until the early 1990s, Argentina's wine industry was focused inward, as the local market's thirst was sufficient to absorb the huge quantities of everyday drinking wine produced there. But with per-capita consumption in the domestic market in sharp decline since the mid-1970s, Argentina's wine producers realized that they had to look to export markets to remain in business, and winemaking in Argentina began its transformation.

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.
