This is textbook Malbec from Mendoza. The intense nose is a sensory thrillride, bursting with notes of cherry, cocoa, leather, cedar, blackberry, earth, and a hint of bacon. Dry and medium-full bodied, the palate is layered and complex, with rich fruit replays embroidered by lovely chocolate notes. The tannins and the acidity are beautifully balanced. Medium-long on the finish, with tantalizing spicy-cedar notes. Treat your friends to a taste of Mendoza, and serve with beef sliders or a hearty stew. (VINTAGES panel, March 2010) 85
