Distinctly smoky, the 2013 Punto Final Malbec Reserva made me think of a Syrah from the Northern Rhone with those bacon and tar aromas, quite unusual in a Malbec. Yes, the violets are common to both grapes, but other aromas might be assigned by the elevage (10 months in 50% new French oak barrels) that give it a very commercial profile. The palate show grainy, abundant tannins and moderate acidity.

Founded by Patricio Reich, with the collaboration of world-renowned winemaker Alberto Antonini, Bodega Renacer prides itself in bringing consumers the very best wines from South America's unique terroirs. The winery structure itself is quite impressive, featuring a medieval tower built of rocks with state-of-the-art winemaking equipment.
Renacer's vineyards are located in Perdriel, a unique zone in Mendoza, Argentina, where the soil, altitude, climate and water come together to create the perfect growing environment for Malbec. In addition to Renacer's more than 35 hectares of Malbec vines, the winery also purchases grapes from local producers in order to take advantage of Mendoza's many terroirs -- those in the Uco Valley, Lujan de Cuyo and Medrano. Vineyards used for Renacer's bottlings are more than 50 years old and have very low yields
