Reviews

  • "94 points. This inky red is slow to open, with fine tannins wrapping around a plush core of blueberry paste, linzer torte and cassis fruit. Needs time in the cellar, but the dark, graphite-laced finish shows potential. Best from 2016 through 2022. 140 cases imported." (Wine Spectator)
  • "93 points. The 2011 Bramare Malbec Marchiori Vineyard from Perdriel was vinified and raised in the same way as the 2011 Malbec from Rebon with just a little bit more new oak (77% vs. 67%) to try to show the differences from the two zones within Mendoza. This has good concentration and is quite powerful, true to the place, as the soils have quite a bit of clay, which make for powerful wines. This one disguises well it is 14.7% alcohol, which is well-coated by ripe, sweet tannins and juicy fruit. The nose turns spectacular after some time in the glass, subtle but intense, aromatic and powerful but elegant. Drink 2015-2023." (Wine Advocate)
