Casir dos Santos Reserve Malbec
Casir dos Santos
Argentina - Mendoza    - Uco Valley

This Malbec is from Casir dos Santos' Vista Flores vineyard in Tunuyan (Uco Valley).

Deep ruby color with aromas of ripe blackberries and plums and notes of forest, smoke and spice. Complex and structured with firm and elegant tannins. Well balanced acidity. A great reflection of the terroir.

wine enthusiast 89 pts"Ripe grapy aromas are full and slightly raisiny. This lusty Malbec is a touch stewed on the palate, but holds it together. Savory saucy plum and berry flavors finish mellow, bulky and with an herbal leafy note."

wa88"The 2014 Reserve Malbec is a blend of grapes from Valle de Uco and Maipú with a fruit-driven nose and nicely integrated spicy aromas from having had 20% of the wine in barrique and the rest in contact with oak staves for some nine months. It's a juicy, fruit-driven, sweet Malbec, approachable and easy to drink. 60,000 bottles produced. - Luis Gutiérrez"
