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

Caymus Red Schooner 'Voyage 2' Malbec NV
"A dense, dark red, this wine opens up with the scent of ripe plums and cherries, layered with hints of dark chocolate. On the palate, it is powerful, concentrated, supple and persistent, with generous flavors of French oak the support but don't dominate. The wine carries through to a complete

92  Wine Advocate 
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
