    August 16, 2012 - Meh...jammy with blackberry cola, smokey tobacco notes and some slight astringent quality on the finish. High residual sugar. Age has not improved this, and less in love with it than my first experience.

    March 4, 2012 - Jammy and fruity, opened the 2nd to the last bottle that I have. Paired it with Grilled lamb chops and Garlic Shrimp. Much more fruity than I remember. A solid Malbec.

    February 15, 2012 - Still powerfull, fruit forward, jamy wine with sharp acid and strong tannin. A little hot, but a touch of a chill helps. The '10 is on the shelf now, i guess i should give it a try. I would suggest if you have this, let it mellow for another year or so.

    November 28, 2011 - Figured I would try the last 2 on the shelf...this is similar to last - just to much seeming sugar and fruit to make this enjoyable past a few sips...i must say that it matched not badly with spicy food...I won't give up the producer as I think they have some potential. Looking for the recent Primativo...
