A great full bodied wine, packed with fruit flavors of blackberry, persimmon and cherry, with just a little oak and tobacco in the finish. Enjoy hearty mouthfulls with a roast beef crusted in sea salt, rosemary and coarse black pepper, or a venison stew. Sip with very dark chocolate. A very good value.

Wine Spectator ReviewRated 93 SMART BUYVery inviting, with crushed plum and boysenberry aromas that lead to a lush-textured palate of warm figs and currant paste backed by mouthwatering hints of mesquite, mineral and Turkish coffee. The long finish really holds your interest. Drink now through 2011.Wine & Spirits ReviewRated 91This blend of malbec, cabernet sauvignon and tannat is also a blend of vineyards, some as high as 9,850 feet in the Calchaques Valley. It's sweet with generous flavors of cherries, violets and chocolate. With air it turns even more expansive. A red wine for an Argentine-style barbecue.Wine Enthusiast ReviewRated 90If an intense style of Malbec is not your thing, then keep searching because this is intense in every way. The bouquet is dark and sun-drenched, with berry jam, leather and bacon aromas. The mouth shows huge blackberry, blueberry and black olive tastes, and the finish is warm and earthy, with espresso blackness. Shows every bit of its 14.9% alcohol but can handle it.Wine Tasting NotesBrilliantly dark with purple hues, this wine has intense aromas of black fruits, cloves, licorice, black pepper and allspice. Similar flavors follow, with hints of cinnamon, nutmeg, cassis, vanilla and French oak. The wine is powerful, yet velvety on the palate, like a chocolate coating and has a very persistent finish. The richness of this Malbec-based wine allows it to be paired with both delicate and strongly flavored meats including beef, lamb, pork, venison, and duck as well as robust cheeses. This wine is drinkable now, and will age gracefully for 3 to 5 years.
