90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - March/April 2013

(a blend of malbec, cabernet sauvignon, tempranillo and syrah):  Saturated black-ruby to the rim.  Brooding aromas of blackberry, licorice, violet, bitter chocolate and spices are less obviously oaky than those of Altocedro's varietally labeled bottlings.  Sweet, smoky and fine-grained, boasting considerable depth and power to its black fruit and saline flavors.  Not overly oaky or sweet, and manages to carry its 15.8% alcohol gracefully.  Saturates the palate on the deep, ripe finish, with the oak and alcohol nicely under control.
