93 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January 2012

(90+-year-old vines grown at 3,100 feet; 14 h/h; all three of these high-end malbecs spent 15 months in all-new French oak):  Deep, bright ruby.  Brooding aromas of blackberry, tar, licorice, violet and bitter chocolate.  Dense, suave and vibrant, with superb inner-mouth energy to the black fruit, licorice and violet flavors.  Really beautifully integrated acidity shows an almost peppery pungency.  Finishes very long and lively, with noble, fine-grained tannins and a palate-saturating impression of extract.
