"A tangy red, with dark layers of blackberry, raspberry ganache and cassis supported by a minerally spine and bright acidity, which drives the creamy, spice-filled finish. Drink now. 12,000 cases imported. " (WS)

"The purple-colored 2010 Malbec spent 8 months in new American oak inner-staves. Flavorful, forward, and friendly, this easygoing wine is an outstanding value meant for drinking over the next 3-4 years.

The Lamadrid wines are made by the talented Hector Durigutti." (WA)
