    "A dark, concentrated color and grapy, slightly reduced dark-berry aromas open this round but edgy Malbec from the north of Argentina. Roasted berry and plum flavors are typical of the Calchaquí Valley, while this stays ripe on a plump finish that's more bold than elegant. "

    "This shows a lovely smoky and bark-like note, which works very well with the brambleberries and underbrush. Full-bodied with nicely chewy tannins that remain tightly wound. Vibrant and fruity at the same time. Drink now or hold."
