Fabre Montmayou Reserva Malbec 2014
(3)
90  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 90 "The 2014 Malbec Reserva had a note of smoky bacon that made me think of a Northern Rhône. 60% of the wine matured in French oak for one year. There are plenty of notes of licorice and ripe plums with hints of violets. The palate is medium to full-bodied with grainy, slightly dusty

Wine Advocate 92  "The 2011 Malbec Grand Reserve, aged for 20 months in new Nadalie barrels, smells of leather, forest floor, dill and paprika over a core of cherries in liqueur not unlike some traditional Riojas (from Spain, not from Argentina). The palate is medium-bodied, with some grippy

Wine Advocate 90 The grapes of the 2014 Malbec were harvested very early and 70% of them fermented using carbonic maceration. The freshness is so impressive that I had to look at the alcohol level, which is half a degree lower than in the fresher 2013 vintage! There are some herbal aromas (think

El Enemigo Cabernet Franc 2011
(1)
92  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 92 "The 2011 El Enemigo Cabernet Franc is a little bit of the reverse blend of the Malbec, as it packs 92% Cabernet Franc and 8% Malbec also from Gualtallary in Tupungato in the Uco Valley. However, this is sourced from plots planted with 10,000 plants per hectare on schist soils.
