This is one of the best wines for the price that I've ever come across. Bold from the moment the bottle is opened, with complex yet smooth flavors. It goes with almost any food as well. Great value for an outstanding wine.Add winemaker's notes

One of the great surprises I've found dining out.
I agree totally with Handron, it was great from the first taste to the last. Delicate yet bold.
External Reviews for Primum Malbec
Malbec Reserve 2009 - 91 points, Wine & Spirits/ Grown at 3,600 feet in Tunuyán, the fresh effect of the altitude is not enough to counteract the warmth of the vintage, which packs this malbec with black fruit flavors and sweet spice. Still, it sustains firm acidity, shaping the flavors and giving the wine exuberant depth. Open it now with a ribeye.
Malbec Reserve 2009 - 90 points, Wine Enthusiast/ Smells ripe and friendly, sort of like a jelly doughnut. The palate is creamy, dense and balanced, with saturated berry and spice flavors. Very smooth and integrated overall, and while it’s definitely dark and ripe it’s also popping with freshness. A complete wine at every turn.
Argentina's Magnificent Malbec/ Bodegas Salentein, located in the Valle de Uco is producing some of the finest wines in Argentina today. Its owner, Dutch entrepeneur, Mijndert Pon, has spared no expense in acquiring first class vineyards and building a state of the art winery on a grand scale. Winemaking is directed by the talented Laureano Gomez who in the start up of operations was assisted by consultant, Michael Rolland. The garnet-purple 2004 Malbec is richly extracted yet elegant on the palate with nice ripe blackberry and black currant flavors.
Malbec Reserve 2010 - 88 points, Wine Spectator/ This juicy red offers a floral mix of raspberry, cassis, and blackberry fruit notes, backed by bright acidity and a fine, minerally finish.
Malbec Reserve 2010 - 90 points, Wine Enthusiast/ Compact, concentrated and clean, with all its components in place. The bouquet is dark with charcoal, but bright with berry fruit aromas. The mouthfeel is comfortable and balanced, with sweet berry flavors offset by mild spice and proper oak. Soft tannins define the finish; a fine Malbec that doesn’t overdo it.
/ Moderately saturated medium ruby. Dark berries, plum, tobacco, minerals and smoky oak on the nose, with a hint of reduction. Suave and vinous in the mouth, with harmonious acidity giving energy to the concentrated plum and dark berry flavors. This offers noteworthy palate coverage and finishes with good grip.
