Expert Reviews

89 Points | International Wine Cellar , January/February 2011

($11) Good full ruby-red. Complex aromas of game, spices, pepper, bitter chocolate and wild herbs. Lush, rich and sweet, with malbec-typical flavors of blackberry and licorice. Broad and plush but with spine. Finishes with a fine dusting of tannins. Serious malbec for the price!
