” A very intense nose of blackberries, mulberries, violet extract, charcuterie, Indian spices and really flamboyant licorice. Full body, lots of juicy, grainy tannins, tangy acidity, tons of dark plum fruit and a long, chewy finish. With a little less wood and more polish, this would have scored even higher. A blend of malbec, merlot and cabernet sauvignon” 95 pts Jame Suckling
“A blend of 40 percent malbec with equal parts cabernet sauvignon and merlot, this comes primarily from the Uco Valley and Lujan de Cuyo. It aged 18 months in barrels, mostly used, and respects the fruit character, which prevails in the black cherry and violet notes of malbec, along with the herbal scents and firm tannins of cabernet. It’s a substantial wine with great freshness and dynamism.” 93 pts, Wine & Spirits
“A rich chocolaty aroma leads to deeply spiced flavors of dark plum, kirsch and mocha. Creamy midpalate, with a finish that is filled with notes of cocoa powder and raspberry” Wine Spectator 92 pts
“It’s a cool vintage that fermented in concrete vats and matured for one year in French oak barrels, one-third new. Expressive and aromatic, with notes of herbs, berries and flowers, it’s balsamic, spicy, very balanced and more about harmony than power or concentration. It’s elegant and accessible, very tasty.”91 pts Robret Parker
