Critical Acclaim

VN89 Vinous Feb 2015

"Bright medium ruby. Brooding aromas of blackberry and licorice. Then plush, pliant and sweet on the palate, surprisingly open-knit following the nose. The cassis and licorice flavors offer immediate appeal. Here the tannins are every bit as sweet and soft as those of the Malbec. Lovely wine." (89 pts.)

RP87 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 29th Apr 2014

"The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon has an herbaceous, leafy side intermixed with the aromas of ripe red and black fruit, cedar wood and cracked black pepper, the telltale notes of this Bordeaux grape aged in barrel. The palate is medium-bodied, with fine, dusty, abundant tannins and a slightly bitter finish. Better with food. Drink now–2016." (87 pts.)

Argentina

Argentina took the wine world spotlight in the late 20th century with its plush, smooth Malbec. While the popular red grape still reigns supreme, Argentine wineries are increasingly putting forth excellent examples of multiple varietals, all at the extraordinary bargains that make this region so accessible.

Now the fifth largest wine-producing nation in the world, Argentina enjoys high-altitude and low-humidity vineyard sites, comparatively unencumbered by insects and disease. Argentina’s unique terroir has captured the interest of such internationally celebrated winemakers as Paul Hobbs and Michel Rolland, both of whom have projects in the country.
