Thank you, Argentina! Opaque garnet in the glass, with dark plum and eucalyptus aromas, well balanced tannins and acidity, and a long spicy finish. A great pairing with charcuterie boards, hard cheeses, or dare to try it with dark chocolate.
|David Skinner rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Dark Ruby.The nose is complex with floral highlights, blackberry and cassis. On the palate the wine is driven by more black fruit and chocolate hints. Dusty tannins and a full body with excellent balance. A nice long finish layered with fruit and subtle oak. Sharing a Porterhouse steak and a bottle of this wine with a friend would be highly recommended.
|Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Intense cherry, ripe plum, baking spice, and mineral (graphite) notes with an odd tropical fruit note (mango) and orange zest (chocolate orange) in the mix. Dominant flavours include: dark chocolate, baking slice and plums. Tannins are present but pleasant (medium), acidity is medium (+), wine is medium (+) bodied, and finish is long. Pair with some thick and juicy bison burgers.
|Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Deep ruby red, this 2012 vintage from Mendoza Argentina features its main star Malbec in a velvety smooth fruit-forward and well-balanced deep dive into the star from the Andes. Rich and robust ripe plum, blackberry, cassis, ripe raspberry, ripe blueberry, honeysuckle, and a hint of clove. This wine is juicy, mouthwatering, robust with plump ripe fruit, medium acidity, medium plus bodied, and well integrated. Recommend pairing with a port-infused cream sauce accompanying braised beef or grilled rack of lamb. Enjoy now.
|Greg Hughes rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
This wine is the collaborative prohect of some of the most prestigious houses in Bordeaux in orchestration with Michel Rolland. Some of the more recognizable contributors also own Chateau Clarke, Chateau Le Crock, and Leoville Poyferre. This wine is predominantly Malbec, with Cab, Merlot, and Syrah in support.
Beautiful colour. Lots of garnet hues.
Aromas of caramel, dried herb, damson plum, cassis, cigar smoke, worn leather, and bramble with leaf.
Flavours show off a sophisticated rusticity. Dusty tannins. Smoke, sage, fennel, and liquorice. Fruit are quite soft and supple (lots of tertiary age notes already). Stewed plum, jammy blackberry and currant. The oak integration is superb. This wine is meticulously crafted.
Drinking well now, but don't keep it too much longer (3-5 years).
|Sean O'Regan - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Deep ruby/purple, black and blue fruit with a floral tone and pepper/spice on the nose. Medium full body, lovely texture and good fruit depth wtih flavors repeating from the nose. Well balanced, with fresh acidity and still firm but fine ripe tannins. Lovely Malbec blend. Grilled rib-eye should work here.
