  • Dark purple. Tight nose of black fruit jam , white pepper, and cigar box. On the palate it is rich, with fresh and baked black fruits, black pepper, chocolate, oak , and a touch of gape stem. Tannins are still fairly firm. Long peppery finish. Very nice.

  • Consumed over 2 days (vacuvined), note from day 2. Nose: Light to medium expressiveness, mint, grape jolly rancher, and tobacco - seems a bit closed on the nose. Palate: Full bodied, black fruit attack, menthol and tobacco, showing some age but still a little mid-palate acidic kick, some green veggies - broccoli - in the back-end. I've had this wine several times over the past 3 years and it is definitely evolving and maturing - showing more earthy and green notes than previously. While still very interesting and enjoyable I would say this is in the back half of its life - just past it's prime. Drink-up!

  • Like a punch in the face from an old lady. We enjoyed the wine with some chicken tiki and lemon rice. Smells include old leather shoe sole, wild turnip and a triple espresso (not from SBUX). Would buy/drink again once my black eye heals.

  • Very intense blackberry flavors with some cocoa and coffee in the background. Full bodied with a grippy tannic finish. The heat really stood out. If you don't mind drying tannins and noticeable alcohol, there's some pleasure here.

  • Wine continues to drink well. Drank with a Bordeaux (2005 Chateau Fontenil) where Michel Rolland also consults. This wine drank very well and went great with grilled filets. It was actually hard to put down. Modern, dark fruits & coffee with tobacco overtones as well. Just entering a nice drinking period. I wonder about the ability of Argentinian Malbecs to age but this wine is showing very well at this stage. 92+ Would buy again.
