|Region||Argentina, Mendoza, Lujan de Cuyo|
Wine SpectatorA suave red, with concentrated red currant and plum flavors that are flanked by crushed green herbal notes. Pure and minerally on the finish. Drink now through 2021. 5,000 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastThis Petit Verdot carries aromas of dark berries and baking spices. The saturated, chewy palate offers equal parts thickness, acidity and tannins. Spicy blackberry, cassis and chocolate flavors finish solid. Drink through 2019.
Wine AdvocateAlso from the varietal reserva line, the 2015 Reserva Petit Verdot feels a bit reductive. It has some herbaceous notes, a medium-bodied palate with fine tannins and a slight bitterness on the dry finish. 22,212 bottles were filled in December 2016. Drink Date: 2018-2020.
