ROBERT PARKER (92 points) A wonderfully crafted wine from one of the world's most famous winemakers, Michel Rolland. 50% Malbec, 30% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Syrah. Opaque purple-colored, it has a similar expressive nose including fragrant plum, blueberry, and black cherry. Ripe, sweet, and seamless, it admirably hides its tannin under all the fruit. It will evolve for several years but who will have the willpower to defer gratification? It is an awesome value.
reluctant europhile - 8/13/2011 Rating: 90 This is a massive wine that should have been aged about 3 more years before opening, but with 3-4 hours of decanting this purple Argentine started to open up. This wine is well structured with abundant tannins and acidity. Black and red fruit do show themselves as well as a distinct rhubarb flavor.
Aromas and flavors suggest smoke, black pepper, spice, dark plum, and blackberry, and all of these contribute to a substantial, firm fruitiness
although it's not a pure Malbec, it has similarities. it's an enriched body, thick and powerful. very nice.
Frutado. Ameixas. Corpo medio com taninos leves. Final elegante.
Wine Spectator"Quite ripe, but focused and juicy, with blueberry, açaí berry and bramble notes laced with fruitcake and spice hints. A nice briary edge keeps the finish honest. Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Petit Verdot. Drink now. 50,000 cases made."
