I really like this wine. Bold fruit flavor paired with Beecher's tangy flagship cheese. Great treat!!

Fresh and black with good minerality and balance. A bit pedestrian.

Good mouth filling wine with a bit of Spice and Cigar to pair with the steak but not a lot of fruit yet with soft tannins, particularly because it's a 2011 drinking now in 2017. A reasonable value but a not a very Dynamic Malbec.

Crushed rock, cinnamon, tobacco, and figs are abundant in the nose. Very nice weight in the mouth, just a little extra bitter but that will mellow.

Hailing from the high altitude Andean plateau of Mendoza, texture abounds in this distinctly luscious and gritty Argentinean Malbec.
