JS 91 WA 90 - Deep crimson colour. The nose presents aromas of red and black fruit, with red currants and plums, and a little bit of mint and cedar. The bouquet fills out with notes of vanilla, spices and mocha from the French oak. On the palate, the texture is pleasant and well balanced. The tannins are refined and gentle. There is a pleasant sensation of softness in the mouth. This is a deep, flavourful wine which can be drunk now but which will reveal more of its character in three to five years.


JS 91 WA 90 Pts - According to James Suckling - A delicate blend of malbec and cabernet sauvignon that shows currants and citrus character. Medium to full body, with ultra-fine tannins and a crisp and clean finish. Delicious fruit, acid balance. Drink or hold.

According to Wine Advocate - The 2012 Amancaya is a Malbec-Cabernet Sauvignon blend labeled as Gran Reserva. It is a red that shows a classic profile, good integration of both grapes with notes of vanilla and cinnamon over the core of berry and tobacco leaf aromas. The palate is medium-bodied, nicely-balanced and has fine, abundant tannins. An elegant blend in the making. Not a boutique wine either, with 268,800 bottles produced.

According to Wine Spectator - A medium- to full-bodied red, with notes of sandalwood to the cherry, dried red currant and plum flavors. Spicy and cocoa powder accents show on the fresh finish. Drink now through 2017. 65% Malbec 35% Cabernet Sauvignon. 14.5% ABV.
