90+ Points | International Wine Cellar , January/February 2011
($40; a 70/30 blend of malbec and cabernet sauvignon) Saturated bright ruby. Very ripe aromas of jammy redcurrant, mocha, violet and dusty herbs. As primary as a barrel sample in the mouth, with juicy, brooding flavors of blackberry, violet and spices. Comes across as quite backward today owing to its powerful tannic spine. This reminded me of a vintage port, which goes into bottle extremely unevolved and matures in glass.
