91pointsKeating 2008 Malbec (Rockpile)

What a delicious barbecue wine. It shows Malbec's thick, sturdy tannins and California's ripe, sweet fruit, in the way of blackberries, cassis and blueberries, with a savory streak of espresso. But it's totally dry on the finish. Shows how well the Rockpile appellation ripens these big, full-bodied red wines.
