Dense and opaque in the glass, with ruby at the edges. Terroir-driven nose of earth and funk, along with green pepper and black fruit. Medium body, acid, and finish, with flavors of dark fruit, green pepper, and mineral. If I had another bottle, I'd let it sit for another few years to see what happens, but it's perfectly enjoyable now.
This bottle was not quite up to the last bottle but was without a doubt the best Malbec of the group we tasted. It is an intense purple and is heavy on the fruit flavors, it is a controlled fruit bomb but has nice balance. The wine has some nice smoothness and oak with medium tannin.
PnD 20 min. Deep reddish purple. Nose of dark red fruits and oak with a faint hint of vanilla. Ripe plums on the palate with a great mouthfeel and dusty tannins. There's also a hint of what reminds me of a mountain cab. The acidity has tempered a bit since the last bottle but the nose seems more present.
