90 Points | International Wine Cellar , January 2012

Bright, saturated ruby-red.  Pure aromas and flavors of blackberry, violet, bitter chocolate and licorice enlivened by a whiff of cardamom.  Broad, rich and ripe but with harmonious acidity energizing the dense middle palate.  Quite dry and classic.  Even tannins spread out to coat the palate on the long, rising finish.  Very nicely balanced malbec.

It is probably the best, most robust tasting Malbec we've purchased. Should've bought more.

The Gran Reserva has notably more depth and flavor above the already impressive regular Fabre Montmayou. This is Malbec that should make Argentina proud. Nice selection!

But with per-capita consumption in the domestic market in sharp decline since the mid-1970s, Argentina's wine producers realized that they had to look to export markets to remain in business, and winemaking in Argentina began its transformation.

Malbec

The Malbec grape may have originated in southwest France, where it still is grown under the name Cot. However, the grape's international profile has surged not because of what's going on in France, but rather because of current trends in Argentina.
