Stephen Tanzer  “Full medium ruby. Very dark aromas of blackberry, cassis, licorice, and violet. Densely packed and fine-grained, conveying a sexy subtle sweetness to its seriously intense flavors of currant and dark chocolate. This is more pliant and rich in the same state than the 2014 bottling and longer on the aftertaste, finishing with plush, integrated tannins, sneaky length and no impression of heaviness. The best Malbec to date from Anna Schafer, who worked for Paul Hobbs in Argentina in 2006 and 2007 before returning to her family’s estate which had been established in 2004. I’d like to have tasted this alongside the better Argentine Malbecs I sampled earlier this year.”
