This may be the best mid-priced Malbec yet from Argentina's leading producer.
"It's perfumed and stylish, with notes of violets and fresh plums on the nose, followed by ripe, but not over-ripe blackberry fruit, subtle vanilla oak, textured, grainy tannins and refreshing minerality and zip. The oak is better integrated than in previous releases and there's welcome finesse here. Great now, but will develop in the bottle for another three to five years.
