Blueberry-blackberry pie aromas on the nose of this amazing Argentine red wine, with enticing dark spices and smoke nuances. Pair with roast beef or prime rib. Great price. Highly recommended.

|Elizabeth Vickers rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
A pleasant bottle on Easter dinner with the immediate family and Tom.
Dinner of lamb, mushrooms, brocolli, potatoes, and salad. Rolls and cheese as well.
Everyone enjoyed the bottle.
|Luc Delorme rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
The deep purple typical of Malbec is fitting for this full-bodied, significantly tannic wine. Black currant and stewed plum on the nose remain on the palate, with some smoky flavours also coming through. With low acidity and minimal residual sugar, only the alcohol is left to balance the high tannic content. Full and drying in the mouth, the finish is shorter than expected.
Nice Argentinian Malbec at a good price. I'd let it age a few more years to let the tannins soften a bit.
|Stephen Andrews reviewed this wine as follows:|
I am drinking this wine on the recommendation of my physician. He is an accomplished wind drinker, therefore it must be a healthy wine(: A colour of cherry red. Opened for at least one and one half hours before consuming. The nose reminds me of blueberry pie and canned plums with a whiff of smoke. On the palate jammy and fruity, blueberry, plum, cherry and oak spice. The taste of cherry continued after the wine was swallowed.
The blend is 96% Malbec and 6% Petit Verdot. Argentina Malbec in general '' fruit forward, plummy with a velvety texture'' I felt this wine was a lighter Malbec in structure, which I personally like in a wine.
I learned that Susanna Balbo is also the winemaker of the Criso series and also Benmarco. She also makes Nosotros Malbec a high end product for $100 Canadian, last time I looked. Limited availablity in Ontario.
I would conclude the Susana Balbo Signature is good value.
|Full-bodied, supple and smooth Malbec, the country's signature red wine grape. A terrific wine for the holidays, whether to give or to get. - Community Wine Reviews|
