    February 6, 2017 - Very nicely balanced wine. Good earthy flavors and a nice complexity for this price point

    August 6, 2014 - Lots of blue and black fruit. Very pronounced on the nose. A big step up from the classic if you will. This is the terroir series. Lots of fininsse here, good stuff.

    June 11, 2014 - Limestone, limestone, limestone is the idea here. Meaning soil type is more important than altitude. Savory, soy, mineral, with definition. Plays hard at $16.

    March 22, 2014 - Tastes like a cheap Aussie fruitbomb! Any supposed "terroir" is completely overwhelmed by the in-your-face candied fruit. Yuck!

    March 18, 2014 - A nose of dark fruit and some spice, dark purple in color. A medium to full bodied Malbec, with black cherry, plum, chocolate, some cedar and spice on finish, an easy drinker. www.winelx.com
