Expert Reviews

This has a good racy beam of raspberry fruit buried under layers of plum jam and melted licorice. Rather obvious, but stays fresh enough. Rating 85 - James Molesworth, Wine Spectator (01/JAN/2009)

Full to the brim with juicy blueberry fruit, this incredibly young red is already very well balanced and drinking beautifully. Malbecis a meaty warrior of a grape but Argento tames its wilder elements and the result is a bargain-priced wine with a fantastic flavour. Matthew Jukes, Daily Mail Weekend(UK) (02/JAN/2010)

Argento’s Reserva Malbec offers unbelievable value. The purple-coloured 2008 features ripe raspberry, black cherry and sandalwood aromas, leading to a medium full body featuring more ripe berry fruit flavours and hints of cocoa, supported by mild tannins. Toasty oak notes are prominent on the medium-long finish. My note: Simple and full-bodied with black fruit.Rating 85 - Nathalie McLean (07/NOV/2009)

An unusual specimen, especially on the nose, where spice cake, floral and incense aromas are typical. The palate is kind of sharp and immature, with grapey, blueberry flavors and coconut on the finish. A different breed of Malbec, but not what we’d call a slam-bang success. Rating 84 - Michael Schachner, Wine Enthusiast (12/OCT/2009)
