(14.5% alcohol; 5.79 g/l acidity; 3.62 pH): Bright ruby-red. A bit narrower and less ripe on the nose than the 2005 version, offering scents of medicinal black fruits and mint. Then sweet, plush and chocolatey in the mouth; in a rather powerful style but showing considerable Malbec sex appeal and inner-mouth lift to its flavors of dark fruits, flowers and spices. Finishes with substantial ripe, suave tannins, an element of saline complexity and noteworthy Cabernet grip. According to winemaker Vigil, this wine was very tannic at the beginning. It's approachable today but still has plenty of positive evolution ahead.
