    May 17, 2020 - Vivid nose of blackberry bramble, tobacco and spices. On the palate, it shows opulent and ripe dark fruits that turn a bit jammy but there is good acidity underneath and the wine has a taut finish with notes of dark chocolate and spicy tobacco. This is really turning into something interesting as it ages. 91+

    November 12, 2018 - Nice wine, but not mind blowing. It could be because it was following up a 97 Insignia. Felt a bit flat in my opinion. Nice plum, and tobacco flavors and nose, medium minus body. I would like to try again by itself, but may be past it's prime in my opinion.

    March 31, 2018 - It was quite acidic and delicate but I thought it lacked a real spine. I am generally a big fan of old vines untouched by phylloxera but these have aged somewhat disappointingly for me and I recall being more impressed with this when it was younger. Could be a bad bottle.

    May 29, 2017 - Pungent nose of coffee, dark berries and spices. Still youthful intensity and a bit of green with plenty of rich blackberry fruit and strong notes of mocha and dark spices. Finishes a bit gritty with some tannins still to resolve but a well-made, classy, opulent Malbec that may still need more time. 89+
