The wine has a beautiful reddish/purple color as most good Malbecs do. The aromas are a mix of freshly crushed black cherries and toasty/smoky oak-just enough to frame the exuberant fruit. On the palate, the flavors of cherries and spice are obvious, and the jammy fruit quality just keeps coming on strong, with hints of spice and sandalwood lurking in the background. This is a wine that you'll want to buy by the case because it can be consumed at almost any occasion, whether at a fancy dinner party, or just curled up on the couch in front of a movie. Fun and delicious-what more can you ask for?

Wine EnthusiastFull, dark and smoky on the nose, then juicy, tight and well built on the palate. Tastes good, with fast-moving black fruit and chocolate flavors fading quickly into a clean, moderate finish. Lively and tight for Malbec.

Wine SpectatorVinous and deeply colored, with jammy notes of cherry pie and red plum on a medium frame. The juicy finish lingers. Drink now.
