88(+?)? Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January 2012
(from 70-year-old vines): Good full, bright red. Brooding aromas of dark berries, mocha and oak. More substantial but less appealing today than the regular malbec bottling, with the flavors of blackberry, mocha and violet struggling under a heavy layer of oak. Plenty of material here but the tannins are dusty and slightly dry, giving the finish a rigid quality. Will this come into better focus with time in bottle?
