High Note

Dark voilet in color. Flowers and spice on the nose with intense blackberry aromas. Exceptional levels of concentrated fruit and complexity with flavors of cassis, ripe red cherries, hints of black pepper, mocha and persistent vanilla. Smooth, round tannins highlight the creamy texture and lengthy finish. Food Pairings: A highly heralded match with grilled meats, complementing rich smoky flavors with the wine's ripe juicy profile. Also pairs well with grilled or roasted vegetables, pasta dishes and rich sauces.

Wine Advocate

Medium purple, loaded with black cherry flavor, easygoing, a crowd-pleaser.

Score: 87. —Jay Miller, October 2010.

Wine Enthusiast

High Note is a dark, extracted type of Malbec with intense color, robust black fruit aromas and a rich, deep palate with core acidity and then monstrous, sweet berry flavors along the edges. It's hefty, fat and saturated, but also sweet and jammy. Delivers quantity and volume for the price.

Score: 86. —Michael Schachner, March 01, 2011.

Wine Spectator

A forward, breezy style, with pretty violet, blueberry and cherry flavors, caressed by a rounded vanilla note.

Score: 85. —James Molesworth, December 31, 2010.
