Expert Reviews

90(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - March/April 2013

(all malbec):  Good full medium ruby.  Brooding, inky, slightly port-like aromas of blackberry, bitter chocolate and licorice.  Then thick, dense and deep, with a chewy sweetness and enticing violet lift to the flavors of blackberry, fig and sexy oak.  Big and rich but lively too; a very pure expression of malbec.  A bit youthfully clenched today on the fruit-driven back end but the wine's sweet, serious tannins should enable it to gain in texture and pliancy with several years in the bottle.
