|Very deep intense purple colour. Slightly spicy, baked cherry-apple-plum nose with some sandalwood-vanilla notes. Dry, medium bodied, tangy, ripe cherry-blueberry-plum flavours with a lingering, cedary finish. Tasted twice. Fire up your BBQ - this Malbec would be perfect with a just-off-the grill sizzling steak. Has 14% alcohol and 3 g/L residual sugar with lot number CVL29217 on the lower part of the glass bottle. TONY ASPLER / 88.5-points / BUY - Dense purple black in colour; warm nose of cedar, toasty oak and black fruits with a light floral note; medium to full-bodied, dry, savoury, blackberry and black cherry flavours with fresh acidity.

|Patricio Tapia awarded this wine 93 points in the 2017 Descorchados, saying \"this malbec is austere and solid with a juiciness and tension on the palate like few others. For spit-roasted goat. TASTING NOTE: The 2015 Malbec Reserva is from Luján de Cuyo, from their own vineyards in the Vistalba zone. It followed a traditional fermentation and one year in used barrels for 60% of the wine. It has a floral nose of violets and cherries with hints of sweet spices, quite harmonious. The house style is quite elegant, with polished tannins and a soft texture. Classical Vistalba Malbec. Very good value. Some 100,000 bottles produced. This is the highest volume in the winery. Score - 90 (Luis Gutierrez, robertparker.com, Dec. 30, 2016)
