(from century-old vines): Bright, saturated medium ruby. Primary, high-pitched aromas of blackberry, violet, licorice and crushed stone, accented by a whiff of pepper. Dense, sappy and savory on entry, then superconcentrated and smooth in the middle, with terrific peppery, minerally energy and lift. No easy sweetness here. Extremely unevolved yet utterly silky wine, offering superb inner-mouth tension. Most impressive today on the rising, perfumed back end, which feature noble tannins and outstanding verve. This complex expression of soil is likely to be a long-distance runner. 94+ Points
The 2011 Malbec Finca Bella Vista is from Perdriel (where they have the winery) at 985 meters above sea level, on the south bank of the Mendoza River. The soils are deep, with abundant gravel. This seems much more subtle and elegant than the Mirador, with finesse and ample fine tannins, the medium-bodied palate is precise, a little incisive, with good acidity. This is concentrated and smooth, powerful and elegant. Drink 2014-2024.
Vibrant, with a juicy spark behind the crushed blackberry, blueberry and dark raspberry notes. Well-built, with fine tannins and accents of wildflower, graphite and cured tobacco lingering on the fruit-filled finish. Best from 2014 through 2022. From Argentina.óN.W.
