Winemaker Notes

This blend is a perfect combination of Malbec and Merlot. It exhibits an intense dark red color with purple hues and an elegant nose with touches of raspberries and mulberries. Aging in new French and American oak barrels for 18 months balances it out with hints of chocolate, tobacco and vanilla. Its palate is large with great volume and consistent intensity. It impacts with its sweetness and long and memorable finish.

Critical Acclaim

RP 90
The Wine Advocate

The 2005 Primera Reserva is composed of 70% Malbec and 30% Merlot. It received the same elevage as its younger sibling. It is a large-scaled, purple-colored wine with aromas of cassis, blueberry, and black cherry that jump from the glass. On the palate it is medium to full-bodied, layered, savory, and dense.

Urraca, , South America
Urraca
At the beginning of 2005, John Langley and his children, Morgan, Zak and Sara, realized their long-desired dream of making premium wine. After touring the major wine regions of the world, they found their dream location in Agrelo, Argentina. This became the birthplace of Urraca (magpie), a name that gains significance as it evokes the affectionate nickname given by John to his wife, Margaret.

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked...

The [Napa Valley] and [Cabernet Sauvignon] are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as [Rutherford’s] famous dust or [Stags Leap District's] tart cherry flavors.
