2014 Bressia Conjuro - 90 PTS - WA

wa"The red blend 2014 Conjuro is 50% Malbec, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot with 14.5% alcohol and soft acidity, still quite marked by its élevage in new French barriques for 18 months. There is contained ripeness, and the wine doesn't seem strong enough for that much new oak. It comes through as quite oaky, with showy aromas but lacking a bit in the middle. 4,500 bottles produced. - Luis Gutiérrez"

vinous logo"Bright medium ruby. Fresh aromas of black raspberry, chocolate and minerals. Plush, rich and mouthfilling; fatter than the 2015 Bressia Profundo but without quite the definition or lift of that wine. This is more powerful but less complex and expressive; it's technically slightly higher in acidity but I never would have guessed. Finishes with a bit less energy and grip. (aged for 18 months in new Taransaud barrels). - Stephen Tanzer"

2013 Bressia Conjuro - 93 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"(14% alcohol; aged for 18 months in new Taransaud barrels): Healthy red-ruby. Complex, sexy aromas and flavors of black fruits, mocha, brown spices, tobacco leaf, licorice and flowers. Wonderfully broad and savory on entry, then ripe and sweet in the middle palate; not especially fleshy or outsized but intense and aromatic in the mouth. The very long finish features firm but well-integrated tannins and sexy spices. Classic Gualtallary energy here--and the spine to evolve gracefully for another decade. - Stephen Tanzer"

wa93"The pricey 2013 Conjuro is an impressive blend of 50% Malbec, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot that felt lighter and more balanced than in previous years, with sweetness from the tannins and oak-derived flavors and aromas. It has herbal and spice notes from the Cabernet and Merlot and round, juicy tannins after 18 months in new French barriques. I wonder how this blend would be with less new oak... 3,500 bottles were filled in December 2016.- Luis Gutiérrez"

tim atkin logo 250"Sourced from a single vineyard in Gualtallary, Conjuro is a cuvée of Malbec with 30% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot that spends 18 months in new French and American oak. It’s a stylish, intense, spicy wine with deftly handled oak and layers of red cherry and blueberry fruit. 2019-26"

james suckling hq logo plain"A pretty red with dark berry, orange peel and hints of flowers that follows through to a medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a delicious finish. A blend of Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Drink now or hold."

2013 Bressia Conjuro - 94 PTS - Descorchados

descorchados2018 logo"This year, Conjuro is 50% Malbec, grapes from Agrelo and Vista Flores, Bressias’s preferred and primary sources for this variety. Where Cabernet and Merlot are concerned, they went to the higher parts of Gualtallary to get the grip that’s clearly present here. It’s pretty impressive to see how this wine has evolved: from a heavy, very ripe red to where it is today, a red fruit focused blend, best defined as medium to light bodied, but at the same time with enormous length, which is, at the end of the day, what matters. Wines with length more than breadth. and enough acidity to brighten a meal, that’s what it’s all about."
