92 Points | International Wine Cellar , January/February 2011

($40; malbec and cabernet sauvignon) Bright deep ruby. Lovely perfumed lift to the aromas of blackberry, licorice, dark chocolate, minerals, violet and wild herbs.

The long, ripe but firmly structure finish shows fine dusty tannins and sneaky length.
