One of the best Malbec's I've had in awhile. Very smooth profile of dark Berry fruits. Very balanced and everything is in it place. Superb steak companion.

earthy, herbal... notes of tea leaves and tobacco. uncharacteristically long finish for a Malbec. opened two bottles of the same vintage and the second bottle exhibited none of the above. it was flat on the nose and seemed almost watered down by comparison. proof that every barrel is different.

Solid effort, eschewing the fruity style of Malbec, fruit forward but not jammy

Pretty notes of rustic dark cherry and prune. Sweet entry, especially on the mid palate. Tapirs quickly. I'm lukewarm.

Ripe deep dark fruit on nose with dark chocolate notes. Round, fleshy and supple with ripe tannins on mouth. Enjoyed with a skirt steak.
