The 2005 was aged for 18 months in 100% new French oak. It offers up an ethereal perfume of pain grille vanilla pencil lead espresso blueberry black cherry and a hint of dark chocolate. Quite massive on the palate yet light on its feet the wine exhibits thick intense flavors gobs of sweet fruit concealed tannin and a very long finish. It should easily age for a decade and drink well through 2030.

Brooding aromas of black fruits gunflint game violet and sexy new oak. Lush and sweet on entry then seamless suave and rich in the middle with smoky soil tones adding complexity to the dark berry and chocolate flavors. Wonderfully layered broad wine that should benefit from bottle aging. Finishes with suave tannins and excellent lingering sweetness.

The nose has black fruits with a peak of black raspberry. Copious amounts of black berry and plum first hits the palate and then expands in a balanced way into a graceful not over-ripe styled Malbec profile. The wine is framed with medium to high acid (which I believe is the key to this wine's success) and full-bodied with plus concentration of fruit. The tannins are refined and help bring the wine into beautiful balance and a long beautiful finish. This wine will pair excellent with a large variety of food and occasions too.

With a dense opaque purple-black color in the glass this powerful yet balanced Malbec boasts an intense nose loaded with bright floral-scented blackberry and plum along side hints of graphite and licorice. The palate is lush and soft displaying concentrated flavors of ripe black fruits and is framed with vivid acidity and a refined tannin structure that lend to a compelling finish of vigor and length.
