2016 Bressia Monteagrelo Malbec - 92 PTS - Descorchados

descorchados2018 logo"Wines from Vista Flores, in the Tunuyán area, tend to be riper, with less sharpness and minerality than other high elevation zones. We’re not really sure why, we only go by the wines we’ve tasted from there, like this Monteagrelo which, despite the name, comes from viñeyards in Vista Flores. This wine shows good ripeness, flavors of sweet red fruit, but is not as it was a decade ago in Vista Flores. Today, the new generation blends this sweetness with fresh tense acidity that changes the profile, without losing the essence."

tim atkin logo 250"Combining fruit from Agrelo and the Uco Valley is something of a Walter Bressia speciality. This juicy, brambly, well-balanced Malbec blends the two regions to good effect framed by aromatic oak. 2019-24."

wine enthusiast 89 pts"Plum, tomato and spice aromas turn more floral with airing. This is a dry pinching tannic Malbec with herbal plum and cherry flavors that are also peculiarly salty. A tannic dry sturdy finish offers plenty to chew on. Drink through 2022."

vinous logo 250"Bright ruby-red. Wild aromas of blackberry, licorice, black cherry, leather and peppery herbs, along with strong chocolaty oak tones. At once vinous and densely packed, offering good peppery lift but also a strong oakiness to the dark berry and saline flavors. Finishes with serious, oak-driven tannins and good length. - Stephen Tanzer"

wa90"The 2012 Malbec Monteagrelo is mostly from Agrelo with around 20% grapes from Vista Flores in the Uco Valley, a ripe red that matured in French oak for 18 months. It revealed ripe aromas of juicy berries and moderate influence from the élevage with some spiciness. The very supple palate shows less influence from the wood and is more fruit-driven with nice fruit and good structure offered by sweet tannins and moderate acidity."

Wine Advocate 90 PtsThe outstanding 2011 Malbec Monteagrelo was aged in French oak and bottled without fining or filtration. Its dark purple color is followed by notes of chocolate, espresso, blackberries and black raspberries. Medium to full-bodied with excellent concentration, sweet tannin and an impressive finish, it should drink well for 5-7 years.

tanzer iwc 88 ptsSaturated, bright ruby-red. Aromas of black raspberry, roast coffee, fig, licorice, mocha and musky oak. Plush, pliant and sweet, with seductive berry, coffee, spicecake and tobacco flavors complicated by smoke and game nuances. Finishes with sweet tannins, a whiff of herbs and sneaky persistence.
