Wine Enthusiast"There's a distinctly floral grapiness to this Malbecevocative of Argentinian archetypesyet rustic touches of bramble wood and a delicate, dancing mouthfeel make it quite uniquely a New Yorker. Blackberry and cherry flavors are rich and ripe, yet maintain vivacious freshness through the finish." - Anna Lee C. Iljima, Nov 2015
