A mild malbec with a faint nose and a bright, inoffensive flavor, quite a good substitute for a cheap bottle of Cahors but likely a touch too acidic for fruit lovers. The key is to leave it open for a day or two – then the wine takes on a velvety yet still very direct quality. (AV 86, http://argovino.com/?p=597)

Good, solid mixed berry fruit, with sweet smoke and spice notes. The round, fleshy finish has a nice brier tint. Textbook introduction to the grape. Drink now.

This plump red offers rounded cherry, plum and raspberry notes laced with a modest touch of roasted vanilla. Solid. Drink now.

This is ripe, with raspberry and boysenberry fruit laced with notes of mocha and fruitcake. Fleshy and round. A crowd-pleaser. Drink now.

Opens with tarry, cooked aromas but with airing, oak and ripe, earthy berry notes squeak out. The palate is chewy and solid, with extract and tannic grab as well as smoky, sultry flavors of roasted black fruits and bouillon. Meaty and satisfying.

Supple, pure fruit expressions and a clean fresh finish.

Light and fresh, with a tasty beam of raspberry and cherry fruit backed by modest, well-integrated toast. There's a nice lingering licorice note. Drink now.

Good beefy, briery, plummy flavors, with a firm, minerally finish. A bit chunky, but good Malbec. Drink now through 2002. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2010 is ruby red in colour, with hues of blue and violet. Aromas of ripe red and black fruits, amalgamated with chocolate, coconut and vanilla. A nicely balanced palate, supported by firm tannins on the long, fine finish.
