Saturated dark violet in color, with aromas of cassis, mocha and clove. A combination of density and sweetness, with gripping flavors of dark berries, tobacco, spices, minerals and a touch of saline. A palate-staining finish dominated by sweet black and blue fruits.
"The 2006 Malbec Argentino is a blend of the Nicasia and Adrianna Vineyards with the same elevage. As so often happens, the combination is better than either of the individual components. It is more complex aromatically, seems more opulent, has tons of flavor, and a lengthy, 60-second finish."
The Wine Advocate
"Rich and opulent, this drips with crushed plum and braised fig fruit flavors, kept pure and lively by well-integrated acidity and superpolished toast. The long finish sails on with graphite, fruitcake and blueberry cobbler hints. Very big, but not heady, an impressive feat. Drink now through 2012. 350 cases imported. "
