Wine AdvocateThe 2009 Finca Bella Vista was sourced from a vineyard planted in 1910 giving a miserly yield of 0.75 tons per acre. It displays slightly blacker fruit, a bit more depth and opulence, and a finish that seems endless. Give it 5-6 years of cellaring and enjoy it from 2016 to 2029+.

Wine SpectatorShows good cut to the dense boysenberry, blackberry and crushed raspberry notes, which are supported by silky tannins and vibrant acidity. Layers of hot stone, spice and violet slowly stretch out on the tightly wound finish. Malbec. Drink now through 2016. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 500 cases imported.
