    Winemaker's Notes:

    Intense and brilliant color, with violet reflections. The nose is perceived typicality of Malbec: ripe red fruit and floral aromas. The palate entry denotes a full, soft and lush with sweet tannins and very present, has a final round with notes of cherries, sour cherries and blackberries.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A wonderful velvet texture with great purity. Dense bramble fruit with hints of violets. Good length and lovely juiciness, and with a firm, fine tannic structure. (JA)

    Very expressive with lovely floral notes of roses, plus black pepper. Lovely mouthfeel and purity. The purest of Malbec expression. (PC)

    Nice, pure expression of Malbec. Clean fruit, violets and strawberries. A great wine to understand Malbec in general and Vista Flores Malbec in particular. Pure and drinkable. (PT)

    great Malbec for the price! Dark berry, cassis, spice... dense fruit coats the palate, but a great structural backbone keeps it all in balance. If you're a Malbec fan stock up on this for the everyday!

    Nice concentration and "extract", good fruit. The tannins want time but are civilized. The problem is a lack of acid which limits aging and "brightness" on the palate. The nose is nice and pretty big - it acquires beautiful dark-fruit and berry tones with air and there's a hint of oak. There's some alcohol roughness in the finish. A decent quality, medium-length composite-cork will hold for a few years; given the lack of acid I can't see holding this for a long time - too bad because that's all that's lacking for this to be an outstanding Malbec. It's good wine and a fair value at the price but I'm going to keep looking.

    We love this Malbec and it's very affordable. We found it to be smooth on the palate with velvety texture. Just had to order six more bottle before it was gone.

    Four stars from me but this is not a wine for every occasion. As dry as some of the most dry Bordeaux's I've tasted. This goes with steak, lamb or other gamey dishes. High alcohol content gives it a little heat. Needs a long decant and serve with foods that will not be overpowered by it. This is much bolder than most wines I've had at this price point.

    Excellent Blueberry and blackberry fuit, with an undercurrent of cocoa. Opens up nicely to a lasting finish.

    Didn't love this at all. Very dark fruit, very extracted, tannins really grab you and not in a good way. Wouldn't purchase again. The "value" aspect can't outweigh the experience and flavor.

    If this was under ten bucks it would be a good buy.

    Maybe I got a bad bottle but this wine was watery, undistinguished flavor, best part was no finish.
