Dark purple with light violet accents and a wide brim. An exciting and slightly exotic nose of wild blueberries, lavender, beautifully subtle herbs, and moist soil. No, this isn’t Cahors, nor is it Argentina. This is pure Napa and it wears that as a badge of honor. So silky smooth, with softer tannins and medium acidity, this isn’t nearly as big as it could be. Showing really nice balance, this isn’t hedonistic at all. Restrained and refined are the words that come to mind. Despite that restraint, there is power here. On the palate, black cherries and fresh blueberries are dominant with garden herbs and smoked meat are secondary. Spice and vanilla on the medium long finish. All these guys do is make great stuff. — 15 days ago
Cor vibrante e bom corpo, o aroma é agradável e sutil, lembra frutas vermelhas, mas com o álcool levemente destacado. O sabor também é bem agradável, e nele também se destaca um pouco o álcool. Quase nenhuma adstringencia, com um bom rastro. Sente-se um leve toque amadeirado mas a sensação de frutas vermelhas maduras ainda se sobressai. Ficou ótimo com queijo. — 12 days ago

This 8 year old Argentinian Malbec is drinking very nicely now. Showing black fruits with earth, wood, spices, chocolates, tobacco, cola, graphite and peppercorn.
Big, bold, rich and extracted with medium plus acidity and long legs.
Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up and shows some tannins (1 hour).
Delicious and peaking now, so drink up.
Aged for 12 months in French oak barrels.
I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.
14.9% alcohol by volume.

It’s like a battle of the bands because this Malbec jams. Jammy, but not sweet, lingering encore. Get your backstage pass! — 6 days ago

This is a very tasty Malbec Blend from Mendoza, Argentina. Well balanced with nice complexity and a great mouthfeel.
Not so good right out of the bottle, so be patient, it is well worth it. Took a couple of hours to open up properly.
A great wine to sip on by the porch. This 5 year old is peaking now and it is lovely.
I paired it with cheeses nuts and crackers.
A blend of 70% Malbec, 15% Cabernet Franc, 10% Merlot and 5% Syrah. Aged for 20 months in French oak barrels.

Dark purple color, almost black. Cassis and black fruits on the nose, chocolate, plum, raisins, some oak. Smooth tannins, medium acidity, ripe fruits, licorice, pepper, nicely integrated oak. Not particularly complex but well made wine. Improves considerably with air. — 21 days ago
Quite dry, possibly good with pork or beef but wouldn't hold up to steak. Very nice to drink later on the evening. — 2 days ago
