95(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - March/April 2013
(40% whole clusters; includes a bit of cabernet franc): Bright medium ruby. Tighter on the nose than the Nicasia bottling, hinting at black fruits and flowers. Then surprisingly smooth and suave in the mouth, with great class to the dark berry, game and bitter chocolate flavors. Penetrating minerality contributes to the impression of precision and verve. Finishes smooth and classically dry, with noble, mouthcoating tannins and superb persistence. I applaud winemaker Alejandro Vigil's use of cabernet franc to contribute perfume to these immensely rich malbec bottlings and wonder why more estates don't do this.
