Get by the opening notes of leather, bitter root and horseradish and what lies beneath is a top-notch Malbec-Cab Sauvignon blend that shows tons of old-vines boysenberry and cassis character. It's a bit juicy and exacting on the palate, but it's also cleansing and will never be confused for fat and misguided. A true Argentine high flier, yet the newer vintages ('03, '04 and '05) are even better. Michael Schachner

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
