Reviews and Ratings

Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A nice Malbec with a moderate - yet complex - bouquet of red plums, cooked black berries, mocha, earthy notes, and a long black licorice finish. The palate is dry with chewy tannins and a mellow balanced acidity. Enjoy this bold (medium+) bodied red with grill steak fajitas. Tasted July 2016. @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
Cherie Cole rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Certified organic, the grapes were hand-picked and aged for 10 months in French oak. This wine expresses a very good complexity on the nose with aromas of blackberry, damson plum and forest floor. Medium body and tannins, with a long, dark fruit finish. This wine would pair well with grilled beef. Tasted November, 2016.
Domaine Bosquet (2012) is a certified organic wine. The deep-ruby wine is a blend of mostly Malbec with 5% each Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. Lots of blackberry and cassis on this robust Argentine red wine. At 1200 metres above sea level, the temperature variance and cool nights contribute to the full and complex ripening of these grapes. The wine also spent10 months in French oak barrels. - Community Wine Reviews
