Very flattering, with a lush core of blueberry, fig sauce and raspberry fruit that glides through the spice-tinged finish. This has a nice polished feel. Drink now. 15,000 cases made. –JM

The 2008 Malbec Angel Paulucci Vineyard spent 12 months in 20% new French oak. It is a glass-coating opaque purple with a pleasing perfume of cedar, spice box, violets, and black cherry.
2008 Malbec Paulucci Vineyard 89 Points, Stephen Tanzer (Jan 2010)
Ripe, slightly reduced aromas of plum and pepper. Sweet, silky and very ripe, with a distinctly chocolatey character. Not as complex as the Pizzella malbec but boasts sound vinosity and more obvious sweetness.

Juicy and ripe, with lots of fig, blackberry, mocha and currant paste notes that pump through the rich , fleshy finish. Solid acidity keeps it honest.

Bright ruby-red. Aromas of blueberry, raspberry, mocha and spices, plus an intriguing whiff of minerals. Supple, creamy an sweet but with good shape to its dark berry and chocolate flavors.
