A rich and round textured red with blueberry and mineral aromas and flavors. Full body, flavorful and juicy. So much going on here. Drink now or hold.

The 2014 Golden Reserve Malbec mixes grapes from different zones of Luján de Cuyo, Las Compuertas, Vistalba, Perdriel and Agrelo on alluvial soils, where old vines abound. The wine matured in new and used French oak barrels for one year. There is a little bit of a change towards more freshness, aided also by the cooler vintages, starting with 2013, trying to remove the heaviness of the ripe grapes on clay soils by harvesting a little earlier. This is a bit of a global tendency, and the result is less alcoholic wines; they also use less new oak and larger volumes, not only barriques, but also foudres. There is a touch of smoky meat, perhaps the result of many different harvests at different points of maturity. There is juicy fruit and a slightly bitter finish. 480,000 bottles produced.
