Rating 2011 - 88 PTS Robert Parker -

“The 2011 Malbec (100% Malbec) was aged nine months in French and American oak barrels. It reveals more vanillin than the other cuvees along with deep cassis and plum notes intermixed with hints of espresso bean and licorice. Enjoy this lively, ripe, medium to full-bodied 2011 over the next 2-4 years. It’s a steal at this price point.”
