Tom Eddy Napa Valley 2008 Malbec, $46.99-$64.99, 91 points, appeared inky black all the way to the crushed black currant purple/red leggy glass wall, where it was ringed silver-clear at the circumference.
The powerful aroma of black-cherry cordial, plum, earth, cedar, tobacco, and a light floral note were important as the flavor profile mirrored the aroma faithfully
Full bodied with lip-smacking acidity with a mouth puckering tannin which, though prominent and oxymoronic, was layered and not overwhelming, but intensified the finish of cayenne and black pepper with considerable heat (14.9% alcohol) and earthy plum.
