Deep red in color with intense violet shades. On the nose, a combination of red fruits and toasty notes given by the French oak are evident. In the mouth the wine is complex and structured wih a long aftertaste.
Wine Advocate 89 points - Distinctly smoky, the 2013 Punto Final Malbec Reserva made me think of a Syrah from the Northern Rhone with those bacon and tar aromas, quite unusual in a Malbec. Yes, the violets are common to both grapes, but other aromas might be assigned by the elevage (10 months in 50% new French oak barrels) that give it a very commercial profile. The palate show grainy, abundant tannins and moderate acidity. 160,000 bottles.
The Malbec grapes from mature vines are sourced in equal parts from the Agrelo and La Consulta regions. The wine is fermented and aged in French oak barriques, with aging lasting 16 months. It is then matured in bottle for a further 6 months
|Pair with grilled meats or tagliatelle with spicy tomato sauce.
