Natalie's Score: 90/100

Rich and full-bodied with lots of mocha, dark chocolate and vanilla spice on the nose from generous oak aging. A mouth-filling wine with layers of fleshy black fruit flavour on the palate. This is a blend of Malbec, Bonarda and Syrah grapes that yields a velvet texture on the tongue. Try it with coffee-rubbed steak or ribs.

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

A blend of Malbec, Bonarda, and Syrah. It's deep ruby red with a nose of cedar, match stick, smokey, sweet dark fruit, a touch of candied fruit. Palate shows sweet stewed fruit (approaching candied), vanilla, maple bacon, this wine is round and smooth and approaching an off-dry style. Great for large gatherings and enjoying with sweet and tangy meat balls or BBQ'd ribs. Tasted November 2014. 87 points. Matt Steeves - @QuercusVino
Sean O'Regan - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Nov 22, 2014: Deep ruby, sweet ripe fruit, black cherry, stewed fruit, confectioners sugar, cedar, vanilla. Palate is near off dry, sweet, fruity and plummy, mocha with a little sour edged acidity and dusty tannins to offer some structure to the mass of sweet fruit. Manufactured to be a crowd pleasing wine, this stands a bit above some others tailored to this market. - 85/86
Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

The 2013 Trapiche Extravaganza, composed of 55% Malbec, 35% Bonarda and 10% Syrah that briefly saw French Oak, has intense notes of vanillin, oak, black cherry and blackberry on the nose and black cherry and sweet vanilla on the palate. It is a medium to full bodied, off-dry, fruity wine; with forward acidity, grippy tannins and a medium to long finish that tends to gum up the palate. This is an easy-drinking party wine that goes down better with food; drink short term (composite cork enclosure). Rated 85 pts. Tasted in Sep/14 at 'iYellow’s Trapiche tasting with the winemaker Sergio Eduardo Casé and Carla Castorina' http://grapeselections.com/grapeselections/wine-reviews/.

Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Here's a great find from one of Argentina's legendary producers. Trapiche Vineyards Red Blend is a delicious blend of Malbec, Syrah, and Bonarda that delivers bold flavors of cherry, blackberry and mocha. The smooth, intense finish pairs well with grilled meats, burgers, BBQ and roasted vegetables.
