The 2005 Malbec is more evolved and broader on the palate than its younger sibling as well as smoother in texture. However, it does not have as much aging potential although it is a powerful effort by any measure. It should be at its best from 2012 to 2023. - Jay Miller

Lovely lift to the complex aromas of black raspberry, minerals, graphite, mocha and sexy new French oak. Suave on entry, then smooth and seamless in the middle, with complex flavors of dark berries, minerals and chocolate; harmonious acids and saline, mineral and herbal nuances contribute freshness and complexity. This boasts uncanny delineation and verve for a wine with 15.4% alcohol. Finishes with sweet tannins and excellent subtle lingering flavor. With 48 hours in the recorked bottle, this showed an almost liqueur-like quality but with an enticing floral topnote. - Stephen Tanzer
