As always, Noemía is proof that excellent Malbec can come from Patagonia. Big, bold and smoky on the nose, with blackberry and bacon. The palate is broad and bulky but balanced, while flavors of smoked meats, black fruits, licorice and especially clove stand out. Dark with a persistent clove note on the finish. Best now through 2012.
