Winemaker's Notes

Medium Ruby. Ripe plums, cherries and blackberries are complemented by a hint of tobacco. A balanced and complex wine with flavors of redcurrants, black cherries and cinnamon with a long lasting finish marked by notes of leather, tobacco and vanilla.

Critical Acclaim

"Good medium ruby. Musky, gamey aromas and flavors of black raspberry, licorice, chocolate and violet face powder struck me as northern Rhone-like. Sweet, lush and wild, showing a slight reduction but enlivened by good vinosity and peppery lift. Finishes with sweet, dusty tannins, good energy and lingering sweetness."

Nice Malbec, I like Salentein's in general (Killka). This one is rich, deep in color and fruit. Decent prince.

Great for a beauty contest, the sly and silky 2011 Salentin Reserve Malbec plays a red fruit tune; loaded with pretty red fruit, this wine is so fruit forward; yum for the whole famiy.
