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

(a blend of 40% malbec, 30% merlot and 30% cabernet sauvignon):  Good saturated medium ruby.  Sexy, inviting aromas of cassis, black cherry, licorice, bitter chocolate and espresso, lifted by a violet topnote; plenty of evidence of expensive oak.  Pliant and generous on the palate, with the sweet oak component complementing but not overshadowing the flavors of currant, mocha and tobacco.  Ripe but not at all roasted--or overextracted--showing lovely inner-mouth floral lift.  Finishes with firm but smooth tannins that coat the tongue.  This very suave wine is balanced to give early pleasure but should age gracefully.
