2010: 89 Points - Steve Tanzer, International Wine Cellars: "Good saturated ruby. Crushed blackberry and bitter chocolate on the nose. Dense and sweet but a bit chunky, with a firm structural underpinning to the black fruit and smoke flavors. Finishes with substantial tannins that reach the front teeth. This rather serious malbec needs a couple years of patience. "


Wine maker notes
The wine has a beautiful reddish/purple color as most good Malbecs do. The aromas are a mix of fresh crushed cherries and toasty/smoky oakójust enough to frame the exuberant fruit. On the palate, the flavors of cherries and spice are obvious, and the jammy fruit quality just keeps coming on strong, with hints of spice lurking in the background. This is a wine that you'll want to buy by the case because it can be consumed at almost any occasion, whether at a fancy dinner party, or just curled up on the couch in front of a movie. Fun and deliciousówhat more can you ask for?!
