Stephen Tanzer: 92 Points

Posted by Kendall

2006 Malbec Single Vineyard Vista Flores ($88)
Saturated deep ruby to the rim. Knockout nose combines black currant, violet and licorice pastille. Sweet and seamless, with terrific intensity and a brisk, high-pitched character to the cassis, violet and licorice flavors. Harmonious acidity gives lift and definition to the mid-palate. For all its immediate appeal, this dense, sweet, impressively concentrated malbec needs time in bottle to soften. Finishes very long and classically dry, with the energy and structure to support a graceful evolution in bottle. 92
