Reviews and Ratings

Terry Jeans - Certified S rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This Malbec grown in the Mendoza region of Argentina, is a smooth, luscious full-bodied red, with layers of dark ripe fruit, with hints of spice and floral notes. There is a nice acidity and soft tannins, so it a very accessible wine that will go well with a variety of red meat dishes.
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Concentrated, deep and luscious, this Malbec offers blackberry and ripe plum, baking spices, and cassis. A great value red, designed to please. Featuring Argentina's signature grape this Malbec Reserve is well structured, full bodied, intensely concentrated. At this price point, I'll buy a few as it is a sure crowd pleaser for festive events and holiday cheer. Rated 88/100 - bespoketastings.ca
Gwen Barton rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Intense deep purple colour matches the rich intensity of this fruit forward Malbec from Mendoza. Ripe plums and blackberries with notes of sweet spice. Hint of white pepper on the finish. Well- balanced with smooth mouth feel and pleasant acidity. Excellent value. Paired well with beef fajitas.
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Pleasant and crowd pleasing. Aromas and flavours are moderate showing notes of ripe plum, violets and graphite minerality. This wine is slightly off-dry, with lovely acidity and subtle flavours. It is a pretty versatile wine when it comes to food pairing. Enjoy as a party wine - perfect for a holiday spread. Tasted Oct 2016. @sommsosa / bespoketastings.ca
James Belardo rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

What would you expect from one of the signature varietal grapes from Argentina? The Agento Reserva Malbec delivers with a a deep, dark color and nice medium body with slight hints of black pepper. It's perfect for grilled meats, particularly the Argentinian style BBQ or 'Asado.' It's a fairly refined wine for it's price - definitely recommended.
