(2011 Vintage) This Malbec has unique profile of aromas and flavors: the ripe plum fruit flavors and silky texture with the dark fruit character and pepper notes and black cherry aromas and excellent structure of explosive floral aromatics full, concentrated mouthfeel.

    Score 92: $20 Bt - full-body aromas of dark fruit and smoke to the nose. Velvet texture with fleshy black plums and dark berries. Try with BBQ meats

    Not bad. Probably better paired with meats. Just seems a little thin. Tried it with swiss cheese and and no real bounce to the flavor.
