This wine has a profound violet-red color and is brimming with red fruits, cherries, dry plums, raisins, and permeated by delicate floral scents of violets and touches of toasted vanilla and caramel. Very round and well-structured on the palate. Fleshy with firm tannins and distinguished by its sumptuous character, robust volume and intense fruit through the long finish.
"A little damp and earthy at first, but it rounds into a full, powerful Malbec with a lot of color, size and drive. Blackberry, chocolate and spice notes control the hefty palate, and coffee precedes a bitter dryness on the finish. An improvement over the past couple of vintages. Drink now through 2012. "
