A red fruit-dominant Malbec with abundant spice and tea, plums and saddle. It’s closed at first, with a whiff of burning stone, and needs thirty minutes of air. Then the fruit opens up and the texture softens to suede. Like many ripe Malbec, this one has a medicinal sheen, which is exaggerated by the 14.5 degrees of alcohol. Give this wine a few years in bottle to settle, burnish, and elaborate. 14.5% abv (sample)

Next up in my reviews of 95 point rated wines. This Malbec is certainly a nice wine but I felt the nose was a bit lacking. A touch oak heavy. Nice finish. Certainly not 95 though. Parker himself is quoted to have been buying this for his cellar. I'm willing to bet there are better malbecs for the price. Mediocre #QPR

Had it at the Four Seasons Buenos Aires. First lunch in Argentina. Susana, Viviana, Vivianita and Jorge. Later visited the winery and met the wine maker.
