    ($120; from a vineyard planted at 3,870 feet) Full ruby. Slightly medicinal aromas of licorice pastille, mint, bitter chocolate and espresso. Lush, fat and thick, but the wine's almost confectionery sweetness is leavened by high-altitude verve. Impressively concentrated blackberry and bitter chocolate flavors saturate the entire palate. This already drinkable wine finishes with suave tannins and outstanding persistence.

    The single vineyard Malbecs begin with the 2007 Nicasia Vineyard Malbec. It was barrel-fermented and aged for 18 months in 100% new oak including a racking into a second set of new barrels (the so-called |200% new oak| treatment). A glass-coating opaque purple/black in color, it offers up a splendid nose of toasty new oak, earth notes, exotic spices, black cherry and black raspberry. This is followed by a plush, layered, intensely flavored wine with potential complexity, precision balance, and a seamless finish. Give it 4-6 years of cellaring and drink it through 2027, probably longer, these wines have no track record of longevity.
