100pt wine I believe from Suckling. Not sure. But this is f@&king delicious!!! "Old School" in every sense of the word. Virgil is like the Michaelangelo of South America, and this is one of the masterpieces atop the Sistine Chapel!

Little chalky but really nice. Good fruit and texture. Get a steak and have a party

A chilled aromatic display with cold blackberries, blueberries, plums, intense floral notes of violets with lavender, licorice, scorched earth, and stone dust. Elegant mouth feel, an almost weightless mid bodied red with intense saline mineral notes that seem to offer a nice cool chill on the palate, delicate dark and blue fruit flavors with a slight savory midpalate and a long lingering finish with subdued torrefact notes and fine grained tannins. This is highly refreshing, so delicate and floral contrary to many a Malbec.

2012 vintage on 12.12 (2018)
Opened half a year ago and used the Coravin. Time was on her side!
Wow! Great wine! Black berries, spicy and long finish (over a minute).

Explosively floral in the glass. The oak is so incredibly well integrated, there is scarcely an indication of its time in new oak, dense rich fruit, velvety tannins, opulent and delicious.

My god, 100 pts. And worthy of everyone. So much going on in this bottle, and yet seamless.

By far the most complex Malbec I have encountered. Needs 1-2 hours of decanting, and realistically is almost too young to open right now. Great black fruit, earthy forest floor, balanced acidity, silky smooth tannin. You can’t ask for much more than this. Certainly not your average Malbec.
