The 2005 Malbec Vina Francisco Olivo offers a similar aromatic and flavor profile but with a bit more weight on the mid-palate. It has gobs of sweet fruit, incipient complexity, and enough structure to evolve for 4-6 years. This lengthy effort will be at its best from 2013 to 2025.

Rich and concentrated, but very pure, this relies more on a raspberry and red currant fruit profile backed by red licorice, floral and mineral notes, than sheer strength. It’s densely layered, but bright on the finish thanks to fresh acidity. Drink now through 2013. 1,189 cases made. –JM
