    Winemaker's Notes:

    Deep color, with a brilliant purple rim. An intense nose, with a fine, floral perfume alongside the ripe red fruit. There are hints of undergrowth, graphite and smoked walnut too. The palate is rich and mouthfilling, with smooth tannins that support the wine well. On the finish, alongside the floral and fruit flavors, mineral complexity lingers. Drink from 2012 to 2018.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Ripe, dense and oaky, delivering blackberry, plum skin and fig paste notes wrapped in silky tannins. Hints of spice cake and cocoa fill out the long, floral finish. Drink now through 2013.

    On the oaky side, with toasty aromas of stacked wood, smoke and black fruits lurking below the surface. The palate has the typical piercing juciness of the 2008 vintage, with bursting flavors of pie cherry and raspberry. Minty and oaky on the finish, with snappy finishing acidity. Drink now through 2012.

    As black as the night in the Uco Valley, this malbec feels tremendous in size and ripeness, yet held high by an acidity that is as powerful as the wine’s dark fruit flavors. Decant it for lamb on the grill.
