The 2014 Maipe Bonarda Argentina Reserve was sourced from old 50-year-old parras/pergola vines and newer 13-year-old plantings in the classical Agrelo zone of Mendoza. It has the telltale balsamic notes of the variety, perhaps a herbal touch that somehow made me think of Bordeaux grapes. There is some rusticity, perhaps a touch of forest floor that is faintly musty and is a character I associate with the grape. The palate is ripe and round, with polished tannins and moderate acidity. This is chewy, pleasant and easy to drink with a slightly warm finish. - Luis Gutierrez"
