    January 21, 2016 - Clear, deep purple color. Medium intense, developing nose with animal notes, tobacco and few red fruits. Dry, medium acidity, medium+ tannins, high alcohol (15% abv) which makes the wine a bit sharp when its gets warmer than 17 degrees. Some fruit. At its peak, but will stay there for 3-5 more years.

    June 2, 2015 - Private barbecue (@home): Did not take much notes. Still very youtful Color (purple Reflexes with hints of ruby), nice, full developed nose with medium intensity (nice oak, dark red fruits, smoke), good mouthfeel, medium+ Body and a medium+ finish with lots of dark fruits.
    Nice Malbec at its Peak, which will stay there for several more years.

    August 13, 2014 - great value for standard Malbec, fruit bomb with good tannin structure that this wine can survive 5 years

    March 18, 2013 - This is a solid 89 wine. Just couldn't do 90. Very thick and juicy for Malbec, and not even the slightest bit over the hill. Bottle was opened to a purple stain on the cork with crystalline deposits. The wine was decanted a deep red, with a hint of purple. The nose out of the bottle was spice, dark earthy terroir. Black forest! The wine was decanted and sat for 30 minutes. The front was rhubarb pie, blackberry jam, earthy, and turned darker in the mid-palate expressing a plum note. The finish was earth, mellowed spice from the initial pour, and a slight sweetness, almost like an aged vanilla. Balanced alcohol and a hint of tannin was noted. Lots of sediment in the decanter and last two sips of the last pour. Good wine - and I think it still has 2, maybe 3 years left if you treat it right.

    June 8, 2012 - Only had a glass of this but a little unbalanced. good fruit extraction, alcohol little punchy. really nice dark garnet color /standard malbec. I'd whip this through a vinturi if you've got one, might round out the rough edges.
