2018 Maipe Malbec Reserve - 90 PTS - W&S

wine and spirits logo 250"Pulled from estate vineyards in Agrelo, at 3,000 feet in altitude, this is fresh and brisk. A year in oak barrels contributed some toasty spice, but the lasting impression is of red fruit—cranberry, currant, red cherry and red plum. Lively, open and lasting, it’s flexible enough to pour with anything, from mac and cheese to sauerbraten."

2016 Maipe Malbec Reserve - 88 PTS - WE

wine enthusiast 88 pts"Despite what seems like a touch of volatility, this Malbec locks in on black-fruit aromas with a pinch of rubber. A pulpy palate is healthy, while this tastes of berry fruits and dark plum prior to a finish with modest intensity and drive. - MICHAEL SCHACHNER"

It is an attractive, medium-bodied wine with light tannin, but excellent depth, purity and overall equilibrium. Drink it over the next 3-4 years."
