A new red blend first produced in 2015 and sold in the US as Mountain Blend, the 2016 Reserva Malbec Cabernet Franc was also produced with fruit from the Valle de Uco, as the whole Reserva line is now. This Reserva line ferments in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts and matures in a combination of stainless steel and used oak barrels. I think the combination of Malbec with some 30 Cabernet Franc is superb, and the two grapes complement each other very nicely, both in terms of aromas as well as texture/tannins, and this is a very good example of it. This has bright fruit, a fresh palate and a vibrant finish. ~L.G.
