The 2008 Malbec Single Vineyard Vina Federico Villafane also spent 18 months in new French oak. It is purple/black in color with an already complex nose of spicy black fruits, earth notes, and floral aromas. In the glass it reveals slightly more depth and concentration than the Cristina y Bibiana cuvee as well as splendid balance, volume, and length. Give it 5-6 years of cellaring and drink it from 2016 to 2028. (JSM)
Dense, inky and sweet on the nose, with cassis, melted Swiss chocolate and well-integrated spice aromas. The palate has size and acidity, with toasty, creamy flavors of baked black fruits and coconut. Long on the finish, with vanilla and mocha; ripe, delicious and potent. *Editors' Choice* (MS)
(from 13-year-old vines; 15% alcohol): Saturated ruby. Blackberry, black cherry, licorice pastille, mocha and dark chocolate on the oaky nose Tight, high-pitched and intense, with almost peppery acidity giving a penetrating quality to the black fruit flavors. This wine has good creamy depth but will need several years of aging for its serious tannic structure to begin to yield. The long finish displays a slightly candied quality. All three of these single-vineyard malbecs spent 18 months in new French barriques. (ST)
A broad, dark, well-toasted style, delivering alluring cocoa, fig and espresso aromas and flavors laced with graphite, black tea and anise notes. Dense but nicely detailed on the finish, as the toasty edge lingers. (JM)
