Sweet and luscious, with hints of blackberry, cinnamon and clove, almost like a mulled wine – great for a chilly evening. (AV 87, http://argovino.com/?p=191)

This wine had many great qualities. From the BIG fruit tastes... to the awesome touches of chocolate and coffee... to the loooong hearty finish. Tip to tail this wine is worth every penny. Great attempt! Will be buying more very soon!

Blackberry and black stone aroma. Slightly cooked. Tastes like cigar box, black fruit and stone, black olive, lively acidity, mildly broad tannin. Good value at $9 for a slightly eco conscious winery without the loss of flavor, but in this case bolder character.

Toasty, with ample notes of smoke and spice accenting the dark plum and cherry notes, which hold out through the smoky finish. Drink now.

The 2010 Malbec (60%) ndash; Syrah (40%) displays darker fruit than the 100% Malbec cuvee along with ample, plush, savory fruit. Like the other wines in this collection, it will provide pleasure over the next 2ndash;3 years.

The nose offers ripe black fruits, black pepper spice and floral notes. The mouthfeel is full yet soft and supple, with black raspberry and currant flavors mingled with notes of sweet spice and a touch of leather. The finish is long and persistent with soft, sweet tannins.

Medium red-ruby. Blackberry, black cherry, licorice and a whiff of tar on the nose. Sweet, smooth dark fruit and licorice flavors are given shape by ripe acidity. Nicely creamy in the middle. The tannins lightly dust the teeth on the long finish. A real overperformer: this appealing malbec is better than a lot of chunky, overripe and/or overextracted examples of the variety at considerably higher prices.

The Tilia Malbec-Syrah shows a bright purple color with violet highlights. The nose is full of rich black fruit aromas with light earth notes and a touch of roasted coffee. The palate displays concentrated cassis and black raspberry fruit flavors interwoven with a touch of chocolate and sweet spice finishing with ripe, silky tannins.

Ripe yet focused, this shows layered flavors of spice and brick dust framing the jammy blackberry and boysenberry notes that stretch out in the finish. Drink now.

The 2011 Tilia Malbec, once again from Eastern Mendoza and Uco Valley raised in oak for six to nine months; has an attractive, comparatively complex bouquet of blackberry, wild hedgerow, crushed stone and black pepper. The palate is medium-bodied with tense, edgy tannins on the entry that counterpoise the tight ball of blackberry, briary and minerals with style. It builds nicely in the mouth, leading to a firm, black olive-tinged finish that lightly grips the mouth. Excellent. Drink now–2018.
