Wine Advocate 90 points - The 2016 Don Nicanor Malbec is a 50/50 blend of grapes from Lujan and the Valle de Uco. It fermented with selected yeasts, and 60% of the wine was put in oak barrels for one year of aging. This wine has changed quite a lot, with the addition of grapes from Uco, harvesting it earlier and making it a lot less tannic and more approachable. It has good balance between ripeness and austerity, with flowers, fruit, minerals, spiciness and just a touch of integrated oak. 600,000 bottles produced..June/2018
James Suckling 91 points - This pure malbec shows dark berries, crushed strawberries, lemons and hints of almonds.Medium to full body, firm tannins and a vibrant, fresh finish. Drink now..March/2018
Made from a special selection of Malbec grapes sourced from high altitude vineyards in Agrelo, this wine ages in small, new and second use French oak barrels for 12 months to achieve refinement of fruit flavor, complimented by a delicate touch of oak.
