89 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January 2012

(a blend of 70% cabernet sauvignon and 15% each merlot and syrah):  Full medium red.  Complex nose melds currant, cherry, fresh herbs, leather and spicy oak, with mineral and floral nuances providing lift.  Surprisingly sweet and silky on entry, then lush in the middle, with sound acidity framing the red fruit flavors.  Conveys a savory impression of extract.  Not quite as primary as the 2008 vintage from Lujan de Cuyo but offers enticing inner-mouth perfume and the balance to give early pleasure.  Finishes with supple, dusty tannins and lingering sweetness.  In a mellow Old World style.
