2012 Penedo Borges Icono Malbec - 91 PTS - WE

wine enthusiast 88 pts"This inky Malbec opens with an oaky blend of vanilla, blackberry, prune, cassis and tobacco aromas. A compact, firm palate is just lush enough, while oak-based flavors of cinnamon and baking spices rest on top of spiced plum and cassis. A peppery finish is intermixed with tobacco notes. Drink through 2021. - Michael SCHACHNER"

2015 Penedo Borges Icono Malbec - 93 PTS - WE

wine enthusiast 88 pts"Ripe cassis and raisin aromas include welcome notes of marzipan and vanilla. This is thorough and lush on the palate, with weight and depth. Chocolate, vanilla and spice accents aid core blackberry and cassis flavors, while this is luscious and loaded on a rich, ripe finish; drink through 2027. - Michael SCHACHNER"

2017 Penedo Borges Icono Malbec - 93 PTS - WE

wine enthusiast 88 pts"Ripe berry and cassis aromas come with a blast of potent oak, but overall the nose on this Malbec is appealing in a bold manner. Airing is vital to smoothing out the tartaric bite this brings, while flavors of blackberry, dark plum, vanilla and mocha finish long and smoother than the palate. Drink this fully oaked and powerfully built Malbec through 2027. - MICHAEL SCHACHNER"
