"Big and ripe, featuring concentrated raspberry, red plum and spiced cherry flavors. Pastry notes show midpalate, with a finish filled to the brim with chocolate and cream details and hints of white pepper. Drink now through 2023. 1,800 cases made, 1,100 cases imported."--KM, Wine Spectator, 93 points!
"The floral, aromatic and fresh 2014 Black Tears Malbec comes from the higher-altitude vineyards where the soils are shallow and have lots of stones. It was matured in new and second use French oak barrels for 24 months and has integrated oak and ripe fruit without excess. It's quite intense and has a powerful yet balanced and elegant palate. It's tasty and shows good purity of fruit and a stony/mineral sensation in the palate, a texture rather than a flavor... 19,200 bottles were filled in June 2016. Drink 2019-2023."--Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate, 92 points!
