The 2011 vintage of this wine could potentially see its 20th Birthday. Talk about an overachiever.

From 25+ year old vines, grown at 2500' avg elevation. Grapes are hand picked into cagettes, and fermented in concrete tanks with the skins. Aged 15 months in French and American oak.

Like oak? This Malbec is for you. Super oak nuances are highlighted by brambly fruits and solid, gripping tannins. Nice long finish with a touch of vanilla.

Great nose. No follow through. Diluted fruit and no finish. This is the second bottle of the '11 vintage I have had--same result.

This is a really nice Malbec for the price. I like this better than the Norton Malbec which is similar in price and rated higher on wine spectator.

Okay. A little flat on the front but open on the back.

Mouth watering stuff. Spicy, rocky, green pepper, vegetal on a way. Very round and to the point. Nuanced, together, and expressing singular vision.
