Good dark red with an orange edge. Complex, slightly brooding aromas of currant, dark plum, leather and tobacco, plus an element of medicinal menthol. Very concentrated and youthful; at once sweet and serious, showing terrific density and medicinal reserve to its flavors of sweet plum, currant and saline minerality. The very long finish features nicely integrated acidity and broad, fine-grained tannins. This still-young beauty should be even more harmonious with another couple years in the cellar. Long hang time for the Malbec in 2002 produced very expressive wines with fully ripe tannins.
