Reviews

  • "92 points. The 2011 Recuerdo Aliado is pure Malbec from Los Sauces, Tunuyan, Uco Valley, aged in mostly used French oak. The nose shows great depth and purity, revealing elegant, subtle aromas of raspberries, licorice and violets. The palate shows equally pure and elegant flavors, with very good acidity, persistence and length. The oak is perfectly integrated into the wine. This is ready to enjoy now but should age with grace. A superb Malbec. Drink 2014-2019." (Wine Advocate)
