My Rating: 90 points. Very elegant body with well balanced fruit aromas, hint of bitter in the aftertaste. Nose is very long with no special characteristics to stick out, just nice!! Costco for 11 $ after 2 Dollars off.

Vibrant dark purple color, gentle aroma of berries - taste filled with waves of blue/blackberries - followed a hint of spice aftertastes, decent tannic finish as well - a great value as one should be able to locate this wine for under $20

This amazing Argentinian wine was the piece de resistance of our 8 course asian fusion New's Eve dinner. I should mention that it was enjoyed, while juxtaposed with acceptable champagne.

    Enjoyed the toasty, smooth finish. Strong but not full of alcolohol on the bouquet. Very pleasant

    Rich red in color with purple hints. Expressive ripe black fruit, violet, spice and tobacco aromas. Very broad on the palate, meaty and of persistent finish.

    This plush red offers velvety blackberry, fig paste and warm currant confiture notes backed by mouthwatering ganache and espresso. A big wine, but driven and lively. Drink now through 2012.

    Focused, with cedar and vanilla aromas leading the way for black cherry, currant and cocoa notes. Taut tanins frame the finish. More like a Cabernet than a Malbec. Drink now through 2008.

    Glass-coating purple color; slightly roasted character, hint of balsamic, lavender, black fruits.

    Very ripe and very primal still, delivering a large core of velvety-textured raspberry, fig and boysenberry fruit that is liberally laced with dark toast, pastis and roasted vanilla. Should settle in nicely with modest cellaring, as the structure is dense, but polished and integrated. Drink now through 2011.

    Full ruby. Sexy claret-like aromas of plum, currant, graphite and chocolatey oak. Sweet and easygoing, with plum and currant fruit complemented by oak. In a slightly reductive style, finishing with broad tannins and a touch of oaky bitterness.

    Winemaker's Notes:

    In 1885, the Buenos Aires to Mendoza railway opened, cementing the significance of this emerging wine-growing region high in the Andean foothills. Ten years later, Edmund Norton planted the first vines in Mendoza’s Luján de Cuyo district. At 900-1100 metres, the altitude moderates the temperature, causing an extended ripening season, and also expose the vines to more ultraviolet light, which encourages the development of colour and tannin in the black-skinned varieties. The result is whites packed with vibrant flavour and good natural acidity, and well-structured, food-friendly reds. The Reserva Malbec is an intesne red colour with purple hints. It is rounded and velvety, with notes of ripe black fruits, violets, pices and tobacco. It has a long and complex finish.
