91 Points | International Wine Cellar , January 2012

(made with organic grapes):  Red-ruby.  Pure, complex nose offers blackberry, blueberry, violet, licorice and a whiff of chocolatey oak.  Ripe but juicy and firm, with harmonious acidity framing the dark berry, black cherry and saline flavors and keeping the wine's sweetness under wraps.  Finishes with chewy, ripe, palate-dusting tannins and very good soil-driven length.  Has the structure to age.  A superb value.

My first experience with this wine was not positive. I found it very unappealing. Very raw and fruity. no sophistication. high alcohol. I am going to try again in a day and hopefully it will have opened up and offer some expression.

About Argentina

Until the early 1990s, Argentina's wine industry was focused inward, as the local market's thirst was sufficient to absorb the huge quantities of everyday drinking wine produced there. But with per-capita consumption in the domestic market in sharp decline since the mid-1970s, Argentina's wine producers realized that they had to look to export markets to remain in business, and winemaking in Argentina began its transformation.

Malbec

The Malbec grape may have originated in southwest France, where it still is grown under the name Cot. However, the grape's international profile has surged not because of what's going on in France, but rather because of current trends in Argentina.
