(2007 Vintage) This wine has a profound violet-red color and is brimming with red fruits, cherries, dry plums, raisins, and permeated by delicate floral scents of violets and touches of toasted vanilla and caramel. Very round and well-structured on the palate. Fleshy with firm tannins and distinguished by its sumptuous character, robust volume and intense fruit through the long finish.
this is certainly a finer and more complex expression of the typically ripe and forward fruits driven found in myriad of argentine malbecs. more subtle and complex in aromas with hints of ripe raspberry, oak, smoked meat and layers of caramel and vannila too. Body is full with spices like pepper evolving in your palate and smooth tannin. decent finish.
1/11/11. drank with a mixed bean soup. good wine. not overly complex, but nicely balanced. excellent value at $13 at Costco. 3.5/5
