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

($45; a blend based on 85% malbec) Bright, deep ruby. Superripe aromas of cassis, chocolate mint, graphite and sexy oak; reminded me of a Napa cabernet. Lush and broad, with a restrained sweetness and enticing minty lift to the flavors of cassis, licorice and minerals. Sexy oak and inner-mouth floral character add complexity. Finishes long and powerful, with fine tannins dusting the teeth and tongue and a lingering note of cocoa powder. (SWG Imports, Bend, OR)
