91 Points | International Wine Cellar , January 2012

(70% malbec and 30% cabernet sauvignon):  Medium ruby-red.  Cherry, mocha and cocoa powder on the nose, lifted by spices.  Supple, pliant and sweet, with harmonious acidity giving shape and lift to the black raspberry, currant and spice flavors.  Generous and satisfying wine, with rather easygoing dusty tannins that will not get in the way of enjoying this wine in its youth.  But has the balance to repay aging.

Great Malbec-Cab blend
01/18/2013
by Baker13481022
This is a great bottle of wine. The blend was greater than the sum of its parts. The 30% cab gave the malbec a character and complexity that is often lacking. Really enjoyable. Hoping for more.
Bordeaux'esq. But better than most.

It may be primarily Malbec. But this wine speaks like Bordeaux. Think I'll make a trip to Argentina. Tight but generous, rich red and dark berry cherry fruit with mineral and spice. Taut brightness. Waiting to uncoil. Spicy notes that say wait and try me latter. Good that I could buy a little more. I'll ration myself. Top Notch!

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.
