($112) Deep ruby. Blackberry, mocha, tobacco and a musky gamey note on the nose; smells sweeter today than the Finca Altamira. Then suppler, sweeter and wilder on the palate, with a more pliant, feminine texture than the comparatively brooding Altamira. But this very expressive wine also boasts excellent sappy acidity, and conveys an almost peppery impression of extract. Finishes chewy and very long. From a yield of 14 h/h. (A second bottle, which I rated 91+, was more reduced and primary, with a distinct crushed fruit and violet character, and was showing more obvious acidity to go with its suave tannins.) (TGIC Importers, Woodland Hills, CA)

100% Malbec; aged in French oak for 14 months Very dense crimson. Rich and quite tawny on nose. Zesty. Sweet but lifted. Polished layers. Still pretty chewy, but all in the right place. Very well done!
