"Bright ruby-red. Pungent scents of blueberry, violet and herbs. Densely packed, vibrant and sharply delineated, conveying superb inner-mouth energy and a resiny complexity to its concentrated dark berry, blueberry and violet flavors. There's a sweetness here and a pliancy to the sophisticated tannins that give this wine much more early appeal than the Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve but I'd still hold this for another year or two before pulling the cork. Finishes with compelling lingering perfume."

“The first of six Malbecs I tasted was the 2015 Malbec Reserva, which is also labelled Reserve Malbec and as Barrel Selection in Europe Barrel. It is produced with grapes grown at their El Oasis and La Pampa vineyards in Valle de Uco that fermented destemmed in stainless steel vats and matured in oak barrels for 12 months. This is a very aromatic, floral and showy Malbec, very fruit-driven, where they search for freshness and use mostly neutral barrels trying to show the character of the Valle de Uco. The palate is silky, with a fine texture and sweet, round tannins, very fresh, even with a minty nose. They produce over one million bottles of this wine in multiple bottling lots from the same blend.”

“A juicy and fruity wine with plum, berry and cherry character. A medium body and a flavorful finish. Drink now.”
"In the nose, it is intense and complex with outstanding aromas of red fruits, black berries, as well as delicate floral notes.
In the mouth, its entry is sweet and mild. It is a fruity and fresh wine with good intensity. In the middle mouth, it is wide with a lingering finish."~winery notes
