“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.

VERY PLEASANT SURPRISE

"This wine was purchased as part of our annual March Wine Tasting celebration. After sampling, I remember thinking, "This must be the most expensive bottle in our collection (because) it is so good." When I checked our receipt, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that it was so inexpensive given its properties and high ratings. Buy it while you can and enjoy..."

Judith

Phenomenal

"Whoever reviewed this as dry needs their head examined. For the price this is a well balanced mouthful. Great everyday wine."

Jose

Good value

"Nice red, good value."

Jennifer

Tasty, maybe not 95 points though

"This one got mixed reviews in our house. Mostly because it doesn't quite meet the 95 point standard"

Guy

Good Wine, But Not 95 Points

"Well made and nicely balanced. Very good value. I could see a 90 for this, especially at this price"

Kent

Enjoyable for those who are NOT wine snobs

"Shared with neighbors. We all love to drink red wine. Price was right!!"

Louis

Pretty disappointed with this one.

"Touted as full-bodied which it wasn't. Medium weight, bit flimsy on fruit. Unimpressive finish seems like generic $6.99 wine from the region. Did not appreciate much terroir. Been through 3 bottles. Actually three stars was overly generous. Definitely overly hyped."

Thomas

ok - not great

"There is better wine out there. nothing more to see here."

Lauren

Dry, but not in a good way.
