90 Points | International Wine Cellar , March/April 2013

Good bright, full ruby.  Aromas of plum, licorice, spicecake and nutty oak.  Mellow, lush and sweet, with insidious plum and spice flavors spreading out to coat the palate.  More open-knit and resolved than the 2011 version but less fruity.  Finishes long and ripe, with broad, serious tannins and an invitingly suave texture.

Very good for an Argentinian Malbec but not up to the Napa Cab headlines.

Picked up only two of these as a throw in to a case of something else I'd ordered because the description sounded so wonderful. It is a smooth, refined, quality product but something just seemed to be missing here. Either not enough mal, or not enough bec, I can't quite figure it out. I have one bottle left, I'll update this review if it proves to be a different result in the next bottle.

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.

Malbec

The Malbec grape may have originated in southwest France, where it still is grown under the name Cot. However, the grape's international profile has surged not because of what's going on in France, but rather because of current trends in Argentina.
