    Professional Ratings: 91 Wine Spectator, 91 The Wine Advocate, 90 Wine Enthusiast

    Region: Argentina, South America

    Varietal: Malbec

    Style: Smooth & Supple

    Item no. 93947

    Winemaker's Notes:

    The nose offers ripes, concentrated dark fruit aromas with delicate floral notes and traces of vanilla and mocha. The mouthfeel is rich and lush, with concentrated black cherry and red currant fruit flavors layered with sweet spices, tobacco and a touch of leather. The finish presents soft, supple tannins with bright, crisp acidity and a flinty minerality which gives the wine exceptional length.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Enticing, with lots of mocha, fruitcake, raspberry and boysenberry flavors stretched over a lengthy, fleshy finish. A delicious, fruit-driven version. Drink now through 2010.

    The aromatic array displays toasty black cherry, black raspberry and violet notes leading to a smooth-textured, layered, rich wine bordering on opulence. It manages to achieve this retaining an elegant, light-on-its-feet personality. On the palate, spice notes and a hint of chocolate emerge.

    We had this tonight with dinner. This is a very accessible and reasonably priced Malbec. It doesn't have the nose of my favorite cheap Malbec, Broquel 2006, but it's definitely going to become a regular. I had my glass to sip right through dessert, and it pairs well with chocolate.
