91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January 2012

(a blend of 60% cabernet sauvignon, 15% malbec, 10% each merlot and cabernet franc and 5% petit verdot; 40-day maceration):  Ruby-red.  Blackberry, licorice and sexy oak tones on the expressive nose and palate.  Juicy, suave and fine-grained, with an almost confectionery sweetness nicely leavened by harmonious acidity.  Finishes with a broad dusting of tannins and excellent persistence.

It improved as the wine opened up over the next 2 to 3 hours, retaining the spicy tannins, but also smoothing out and becoming more silky. Great finish and persistence.
