Wine Spectator"This offers luscious dark plum, dried cherry and mocha notes that are supported by medium-grained tannins. Chocolate, cream and spice flavors fill the midpalate and linger on the rich finish. Drink now through 2020."

Wine AdvocateThe nose of the 2015 Reserve Malbec was a little raw and wild, from sheer youth, I guess, and the violet aromas were pushing to come out and they did after some time. There are some tannins to be rendered by some more time in the bottle (it was bottled in April 2016) with good concentration from a ripe, dry year. A powerful Salta Malbec. 80,000 bottles produced.
