This wine was absolutely huge. One of the nicest, but most powerful wines I have had. I am not adequately able to describe or rate it really. Needs something big to go with it, like a grilled T-bone. Outstanding.
An outstanding Malbec from Argentina. Beautiful garnet colour. Silky smooth with light pepper on the palate. Lovely tanins. A very enjoyable wine. Tasted January 2012.
Just opened one. Very big wine, more herby than fruity. Extremely rich and dense. Complex but in a new world way where there are a few different very big tones kinda shouting over each other. It's balanced in that none of them wins.
If drinking now, decant. This wine is very big, very nicely done, but needs time to take the edges off. Right now almost too rich to sip on without food.
93 is a rating I'd call tentative. 5 years from now this thing could be a 96 or could be a 90.
