88 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - March/April 2014

Bright ruby-red.  Aromas of blackberry, menthol and pepper.  A step up in concentration and density from the 2013 tempranillo, showing good cut and intensity to its youthful flavors of blackberry, menthol and pepper.  Tannins are firm but not dry and the lingering finish shows a slightly edgy herbal quality.

Wine access hit the nail on the head. Price point, description of the wine, the only problem is I didn't order two cases! My Bar-B-Q wine for the summer!

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.
