This wine is drinking beautifully with concentrated and ripe black cherry, creme de cassis, mulberry, plum, purple fig, violet, black licorice, anise, graphite, pencil shavings, sandalwood, vanilla bean, clove, leather, forest floor, and tobacco notes.
It has an excellent balance of primary, secondary and tertiary characteristics.
On the palate, it has a silky texture and fine-grained tannins. Acidity adds lift. High alcohol contributes to the full body and robust mouthfeel.
It’s made with 50% Merlot, 30% Cabernet Franc, and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. — a month ago

I enjoyed this wine but perhaps not quite as much as RP’s 97 points. It was a little tart to open but mellowed with air. I was expecting a higher alcohol, more straightforwardedly fruity wine given the Argentine origins. However, the winemaker is explicitly targeting a Bordeaux taste in the style of Chateau Cheval Blanc. After I read that, the taste clicked a bit more. A smooth, tasty expression of the Bordeaux style. 62% malbec, 38% cabernet. $80. Would drink again. — 2 months ago
