Reviews and Ratings

Nicole Lewis rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Label whores take note! This is a wine with a beautiful red label with a tasteful, small raised crest that has the words "Family Icon" above it. I confess that I'd like to remove the crest and apply to my body somewhere...Sorry, I digress...

This is a well-made Argentinian Cabernet Sauvignon from Agrelo, Mendoza province, a small wine region better known for its big, complex Malbec wines. The Maza family has been producing wine since 1959. In 2008 Héctor Durigutti, winemaker and Guillermo García Lamadrid updated the winery with injection of capital and love.

This single vineyard Reserva is a full-bodied red, with medium acidity, grippy and pleasing tannins. It is fruit forward: ripe cherry, a bit of black berry, dried tobacco and leather aromas. I just had a glass of this wine with my smoky veggie bacon and tomato sandwich. It was perfect. You would be hard pressed to find such a quality to price point ratio. It would also pair well with medium-rare venison steaks.
