aromas of blackberries, plums and currants with hints of spice. some smokiness on the palate with layers of dark berries, easy drinking, not alot of complexity, but enjoyable
My Rating 85; This wine is dry but not very interesting. Nose is neutral with no outstanding features. Too expensive at $ 10.-
I love malbec but this was a little bit of a disappointment. Could it be past its prime already? Starts off fragrantly, but doesn't deliver after that and leaves a bit of a bitter finish.
Great nose of raspberries and blueberries with a little hint of mango. Good deep color. Smooth texture with earthy tones; good acidity. A bit of citrus flavor on the back end. A well built wine with a smooth finish. 90/100 points.
This wine is awesome ;-)
Great plum notes, nice complexity. Great value.
Full, smooth, could cellar a few years due to tanins.

90 Points - Wine Spectator"Lush and very expressive with mocha, crushed currant, plum sauce and fig paste notes that glide over the dense but velvety structure. Long and fleshy, with the fruit echoing nicely. Not shy at all, but nicely balanced. Drink now."-JM , Aug 31, 2009
A ripe, modern style, with layers of velvety mocha-infused plum, red currant and red licorice flavors. The long, fleshy finish maintains nice purity. Rock-solid. Malbec, Bonarda and Syrah.

Patricio Tapia describes it as a rare blend of Malbec (72%), Bonarda and Syrah. The aromas of this wine bring to mind raspberries and blueberries combined with kernels of green pepper. Its lively acidity intensifies flavors of fresh red fruit.
