(14.4% alcohol; the yield here was reportedly just 2.5 tons per acre; aged for 18 months in new French oak): Bright medium ruby. Sappy scents of blackberry, black raspberry, plum, licorice, flowers and herbs. Tactile, savory, concentrated wine with dark fruit flavors accented by violet and licorice high notes. Finishes with remarkably sweet, ripe, Malbec-dominated tannins and terrific length. Showing a bit of development, and thus not as relentlessly primary as this winery's 2016 Lote Negro blend. But this wine should continue to evolve gracefully in bottle. (Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, July 2018)
