Great expression of Malbec and a little blend. I love the rich smokey dark fruit it brings. Went great with ribs at Ruth Grill.

Red and black fruit dusted with cayenne pepper, roasted coffee and green tobacco--powerful but silky ripe tannin, with a hint of mint chocolate on the end. The Bordelaise influence definitely shines.

Tannins, oak, and a boatload of fruit. Fun but not a lot of grace

60% Malbec, 20 Cab, 20 Petit Verdot. Love this Argentine/Bordeaux mashup. 7-9 years of age just right.

Simply standout. So much sweet berry notes that are deep, complex, and elegant. Everything I hope wine to be. It is very tannic, but that's not a deterrent at all. Have it with steak!
