The 2008 Malbec (priced just over the limit to qualify for the Value report) dark ruby red in color it delivers an alluring bouquet of Asian spices incense lavender and black cherry. Smooth textured spicy and easy-to understand this pleasure-bent Malbec is an outstanding value for drinking over the next 4-6 years. -Jay Miller

Aromas of violets and juicy raspberries power past this wine's lighter scents of black pepper and cassis. Warm with alcohol it's completely filled by the rich generous fruit flavors that promise a good life in bottle.

Superripe aromas of blackberry licorice mint menthol and musky tobacco plus an exotic suggestion of white fruit; almost a porty suggestion here. Sweet lush and silky with a layered texture to the intense plum and chocolatey oak flavors. As seamless and creamy as this is it also boasts a high pitch and a brisk quality. Finishes with suave dusty tannins and a whiplash of fruit. Drink this now or over the next several years.
