91 Points | International Wine Cellar , January 2012

Full ruby-red.  Aromas of cassis, licorice, violet and musky oak.  Distinctly lush and creamy on the palate but with ripe acidity giving shape to the currant, mocha and chocolate flavors.  This seamless malbec verges on confectionery.  Finishes very long, with fine-grained tannins.
