Critical Acclaim

VN89 Vinous Sep 2019

"Bright full ruby. Deep aromas of black fruits and violet, complicated by a honeyed note. A step up in texture and palate presence from the Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon, offering lovely breadth and density along with a restrained sweetness to its flavors of slightly roasted fruits and black olive. Finishes with very good length and fine-grained tannins that ultimately turn a bit dry. This is a 70/30 blend of Malbec and Cabernet Franc: Zuccardi explained that “Malbec can lack a bit of structure so we like to add another variety with more tannins, and to co-ferment.” While he vinifies at Zuccardi with a percentage of whole bunches, he destems the fruit at Santa Julia." (89 pts.)

RP91 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 31st Oct 2019

"The 2018 Reserva Mountain Blend, sold in parts of the world as “Reserva Malbec - Cabernet Franc,” is a 70/30 blend of the two varieties and some 30% of the volume matured in oak (mostly the Cabernet Franc). The wine is herbal and floral, and the palate is clean and vibrant, juicy, with round and lush tannins. It’s a blend that seems to be working very well — both in its integration and on the sales side. They produce a whopping 400,000 bottles of this." (91 pts.)

WS88 Wine & Spirits October 1, 2019

"Mostly malbec, with 30 percent cabernet sauvignon, this is a high-octane red, its sweet, chocolatey plum flavor balanced by alcohol’s peppery spice." (88 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.
