High Note

Dark violet in color. Floral notes and spice on the nose with intense blackberry aromas lead to 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. 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 Enthusiast

Opens with aromas of mint and latex, then the oak rises up, leaving vanilla and sawdust scents. Dry tannins and good size set up a minty-tasting flavor profile with resin and wild berry flavors. Finishes with anise and licorice, and just enough acidity to keep it balanced.

Score: 86. —Michael Schachner, December 31, 2011.

Wine Advocate

The 2010 Malbec spent 11 months in 26% new French and American oak. It is a straightforward, spicy, firm, satisfying offering that will provide enjoyment over the next 3-4 years.

Score: 86. —Jay Miller, December 2011.
