JS 93 WA 91 Vinous 90+ Pts - According to James Suckling - "Wonderful aromas of blueberries, blue slate and violet. Full body, yet very, very refined and silky. Delicate and silky finish. Love to smell this. Drink now."
According to Wine Advocate - "The 2012 Bramare Malbec (Valle de Uco) is sourced from vineyards in San Carlos and Tupungato in the Uco Valley. The grapes fermented in stainless-steel vats and aged in a combination of new and used, French and American oak for some 17 months. This is very dark-colored, almost opaque and the nose shows dark aromas, too, of graphite, peat, hints of smoke and ripe black cherries plus plenty of spicy notes. The palate is full-bodied with polished, glossy tannins and moderate acidity."
According to Stephen Tanzer - "Bright, full ruby-red. A touch of reduction to the deeply pitched aromas of blackberry, bitter chocolate and cocoa powder. Fat and dense but a bit more literal than the Luján de Cuyo Malbec, showing less energy and fruit intensity to its dark raspberry and dark chocolate flavors. Finishes with substantial dusty tannins and a repeating chocolate quality." 14.5% ABV.
