TASTING NOTE: Amazing depth and intensity to this old-vine malbec with blackberry and black-licorice character to the wine. Violets, too. It's full and dense, yet remains energetic and long. Polished, refined tannins. A gorgeous, plush red. Drinkable now for its generosity, but let it mellow with a few years of bottle age. Better after 2024 [or decant for 1-2 hours and enjoy tonight with roast beef. This will drink through 2027+.] Score - 95 (jamessuckling.com, Feb. 3, 2022) Price $ 37.95
