2008 Bressia Profundo - IWC - 90 PTS

tanzer iwc 90 pts(50% malbec, 30% cabernet sauvignon and 10% each merlot and syrah): Slightly reduced aromas of blackberry, licorice, smoked meat and violet. Sweet, musky and seamless if still a bit youthfully reduced, with nicely integrated acidity giving shape to the middle palate. Finishes broad and suave, with sophisticated tannins, a lightly saline quality and very good length. This needs a couple years of patience.

2008 Bressia Profundo - WA - 92 PTS

Wine Advocate 92 PtsThe 2008 Bressia Profundo is initially muted on the nose, demanding coaxing from the glass. It eventually offers blackberry, briary, crushed stone and a touch of iodine. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly chewy tannins. There is decent structure here, the wine remaining poised and focused with firm backbone from start to finish. Tightly coiled now, give this wine three years in bottle to see it strut its stuff. Drink 2015-2023. - NM

2009 Bressia Profundo - WA - 92 PTS

Wine Advocate 92 Pts.A new estate for me, Bodega Bressia-s proprietor, Walter Bressia, has been in the Argentine wine trade for nearly three decades. .......... I tasted two other Bressia wines that were priced too high for this report, the 2009 Profundo (50% Malbec, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% each Merlot and Syrah); ($40.00; 92 points) and the prodigious 2009 Conjuro (50% Malbec, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot); ($120.00; 96 points).

2010 Bressia Profundo - 88 PTS - WE

wine enthusiast 88 pts"This extracted Malbec blend deals full doses of blueberry, blackberry, balsamic vinegar, vanilla and mocha aromas. The palate weighs in on the jammy, overripe side, with almost no acidic cut. Soupy, ultraripe flavors of crème de cassis, carob and prune finish raisiny. Drink this syrupy wine through 2017. — M.S."

2010 Bressia Profundo - 95 PTS - TA

tim atkin logo 250"The top wine at Bressia (apart from the tiny release of Ultima Hoja) is a blend of Malbec with 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% each of Merlot and Syrah. Suitably dense and profound, it's a complex, age-worthy wine with black fruits, sweet oak and a compact core of tannins. Give the wine time in bottle. Drink: 2017-23"

2011 Bressia Profundo - 89+ PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo 250"(15% alcohol): Bright medium ruby. Aromas of cassis, black cherry, licorice and spicy oak are lifted by leafy and peppery accents. Large-scaled, broad and sweet, showing an obvious oak component but plenty of rich dark berry flavor and volume. Piquant notes of herbs and pepper add energy and interest. This generous, lightly herbal wine finishes with serious dusty tannins and very good length. Should evolve gracefully. - Stephen Tanzer"

2012 Bressia Profundo - 90 PTS - WA

wa90"The ripe 2012 Profundo is a blend of 50% Malbec, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% each Merlot and Syrah from Agrelo, in Luján de Cuyo, aged for 12 months in French and American oak barrels. Ripe, with dark plums, sweet spices, something earthy and also perfumed, the nose is quite elegant. This is a classical blend showing good balance and a certain elegance within its powerful style. - Luis Gutiérrez"
