"The opaque purple 2008 Malbec was aged in a mix of new and seasoned French oak and in tank. It displays a superb aromatic array of cigar box, cinnamon, incense, black cherry and plum. Medium- to full-bodied, on the palate it is smooth-textured, round, dense, and layered, The fruit is succulent and the wine has excellent depth and length. Drink it over the next 4-6 years."
The Wine Advocate
"Good medium ruby. Pure aromas of black raspberry, bitter chocolate and violet. Silky, very ripe malbec, with very good lift and precision to the sweet cherry, mocha and truffle flavors. Finishes with a sexy note of baking chocolate and surprising grip."
