Reviews and Ratings

Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Medium purple colour with medium viscosity and staining. Fabulous bouquet with blueberry, licorice, stewed fruit, soft suede leather and a hint of coffee and caramel.
In the mouth, cassis, dark plum elements of bramble berry pie filling and preserved red and dark fruit with a nice touch of vanilla rounding it out.
Medium acidity, Body, Finish and Length accompanied with Medium minus tannins. Dry (2g/L) Fruity, full and fine, quite well balanced. Not hard to see why it's the best selling Malbec worldwide. Flavourful and robust.
Sylvain Segard rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Medium garnet colour. Sweet aroma of stewed plums. Medium mouthfeel with a hint of juicy sweetness, vanilla, smoke. Balanced, medium-low tannins. Long finish of plums and blackberries. And easy drinking Malbec.

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A richly flavoured and aromatic Malbec Reserve, with blackberry and dark plum aromas and a palate giving concentrated blackberries, plum jam, mocha, vanilla and touch of smoke. Well-balanced, smooth mouthfeel and long plummy finish with mocha finale.
Tasted Oct. 2016
Caitlin Coleman rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

The Flagship grape varietal Malbec from Argentina is beautifully expressed in this Reserve wine. Lots of plums and black cherries on the nose with a sprinkle of black peppercorn. This is an easy drinking wine with non-offensive tannin to offer just enough body to pair well with any cheese or red meat.
Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

A decent Malbec for the price. Black fruit and smoky oak aromas and flavors. The flavors blend together nicely. Pair with beef burritos or beef chili.
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Bright ruby red, 13.5% ABV. Blueberry and ripe plum on the nose. Almost ripe Blackberry, ripe plum with a hint of oak on the palate. Medium tannins, medium body. Juicy and mouthwatering. Pairs well with BBQ burgers. Tasted April 17, 2017. 87 points. Great value.
