Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A smooth and velvety, fragrant Malbec - Syrah blend, showing plum, mocha, herbal and peppery flavours that explode in your mouth and linger in a spicy finish. Love this label and love this wine!
Tasted Jan. 2019
Diamandes' Perlita 2016 is a medium-plus-bodied fruity and juicy Malbec and Syrah red wine blend from the Uco Valley, Argentina. Look for fresh red plum, red cherry and dark berry flavours on the palate. Well-priced under $20. Enjoy now with barbeque fare. - Community Wine Reviews
