2012 El Ganador Malbec - WA - 87 PTS

Wine Advocate"A custom cuvee made specifically for Kysela Pere et Fils, this 100% Malbec (3,000 cases produced) was aged six months in new French oak and for a short time in the bottle prior to release. Its dark ruby/plum color is followed by aromas of white chocolate, smoke, mulberries and black currants. Lush, fruit-driven, supple and velvety, drink it over the next 1-2 years."

bti"Garnet color. Aromas of black cherry, plum jam, rich dark soil, and violet honey with a lightly tannic, lively, dry medium-to-full body and a tingling, complex, medium-long black cherry, rich garden soil, crushed plum, and cinnamon toast finish with medium tannins and moderate oak. Dense, dark and chewy with earthy complexity, balancing the luscious jammy fruit qualities of new world with earthy qualities of old world wines."

2017 El Ganador Malbec - 87 PTS - WE

wine enthusiast 87 pts"Berry and plum aromas come with a roasted side note. A crisp ringing finish is a bit shearing and acidic, while this tastes of spicy, peppery plum and berry fruits. A tight finish with chalky grip helps this end on a positive note. - Michael Schachner"

2018 El Ganador Malbec - 89 PTS - Silver Medal - BTI

bti silver 2021 b"Deep purple color. Fruity, inviting aromas and flavors of blackberry pie, vanilla gelato, root beer, black olives, and anise with a satiny, vibrant, fruity light-to-medium body and a sleek, interesting, medium-length finish evoking notes of spiced cashews and tart plum with no oak flavor. A juicy, youthful and pleasing Malbec that delivers."
