90 pts. Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate: December, 2011
The 2010 Malbec contains 10% Bonarda in its makeup and received the same elevage as the Cabernet. Lovely aromas of black cherry, spice box, tobacco, lavender, and earthy minerals inform the nose of a ripe, succulent, intensely flavored wine that offers outstanding value and is meant for drinking over the next 5–7 years.
89 pts. Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar: Mar/Apr 2012
Bright ruby-red. Licorice and exotic oak dominate the nose. Juicy and quite oaky, with chocolate, coffee bean and smoke flavors currently overshadowing the wine’s fruit. Finishes dry and a tad medicinal, with firm tannins.
