94(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - March/April 2014

(contains 5% viognier; vinified with 40% whole clusters):  Bright, deep ruby-red.  Exhilarating perfume of flowers, minerals and white peach, with dark berries in the background.  Deep, tactile, saline and energetic, boasting outstanding inner-mouth perfume.  If the Nicasia Vineyard wine is horizontal, this one is more backward and vertical.  Finishes sappy and long, with terrific lift.  This utterly fascinating and firmly structured malbec held up beautifully for four days in the recorked bottle.
