Good Malbec but the price is a little much to swallow. Super dark and dense in a Bordeaux like manner that has an almost chalky/smoky minerality.

Not my cup of tea. Oak laden and showing high alcohol on nose.

For sure the best Malbec I have ever tasted, concentrated and powerfully serious but the feel was velvety and not clunky with oak. Really a lovely wine- thanks for sharing Casey!

One of the better Argentine Malbec for me in a while. Violets, iron, spice, blackberry and plum with excellent acidity and structure. A Graves like scorched earth character in the nose was great.
