91pointsFrançois Lurton 2009 Piedra Negra Gran Malbec (Uco Valley)

An exotic component to the bouquet gives this Malbec something different on the nose, namely aromas of blueberry, cardamom and anise. This is full bodied, maybe a touch fat, but with fine balance and rich flavors of blackened toast, licorice, peppercorn and blackberry. A chocolaty, toasty, coffee-laden finish brings mild warmth and gravitas. Drink through 2016. Michael Schachner
