Natalie's Score: 90/100
Seductive blackberries and fleshy black plums on the nose, full-bodied with gorgeous velvet texture on the palate of this elegant Argentine red wine brought to us by Vistalba. Lovely bite on the palate. Spice and cedar smoke on a long and persistent finish. A beautiful expression of Mendoza malbec. Pair with lamb chops.
Malbec food pairings: baseball steak with sautéed mushrooms on wilted greens, selection of prosciutto and breasola meats, bacon onion and potato omelet.

|Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:|
This wine blew me out of the water as soon as the cork was pulled. Stunning, featuring blackberry, black currant paste, herbs, melted black licorice, tobacco, plum skin, and a whole lot more. Warm, dense, and a little spicey. 93 Points. (www.ottawawinejournal.com)
|Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
Wow! Super rich and concentrated Mendoza Malbec. The Gran Reserva shows the power and grace a fine Malbec can have. Loaded with dark field berries, plum, spice, and leather. So smooth and polished, it's ideally suited for gourmet meals with complementary complex flavours such as beef short ribs braised in red wine and star anise, or an Argentine favourite, beef empanadas. Tasted April 2016. 92 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Damson plum nose with a hint of mocha. The palate gives more plum, mocha, vanilla & baking spice, earth and smoke. XD, full-bodied with spicy plum finish.
Tasted May 2016
|Produced by Domaine Vistalba, the grapes are grown on vines that are over 80 years old in Vistalba and Las Compuertas regions, and they're cropped at 35 hectoliters per hectare, which is low, and aged in French barrel for 12 months. The 2012 vintage of the Gran Reserva Malbec is made from 100% Malbec grapes grown on low-yielding vines planted in the region of Lujan de Cuyo. The wine is fermented in concrete vats and then matured for 12 months in French oak barrels, of which about a third is new, a third is second-use and the remainder third use. - Community Wine Review|
