Winemaker's Notes

Deep red color with violet tones. Very intense bouquet with red fruits like cherries and spices. Complex and well balanced with notes from the oak like vanilla and chocolate. Big on the mouth. A modern style wine, with sweet silky tannins.

Great combined with all kind of grilled meats, games and cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2012 Malbec Reserva is aged for one year in French oak, and is quite dark-colored, with a showy, intense nose where the ripe black fruit and licorice aromas completely coat the oak notes. The palate is also fruit-driven, with buttery tannins, and is full-bodied, but keeping the freshness. This is great Malbec at a fantastic price. This very same wine is also sold in the United States under the Donaire brand. Drink now-2018. "
90 Points

"Bright ruby-red. Aromas of blackberry, menthol and pepper. A step up in concentration and density from the 2013 tempranillo, showing good cut and intensity to its youthful flavors of blackberry, menthol and pepper. Tannins are firm but not dry and the lingering finish shows a slightly edgy herbal quality."
