Expert Reviews

Vinous/Antonio Galloni (2013)87 pts

Mar/Apr '14 by Stephen Tanzer - Garish light red. Red fruits with hints of herbs and a subtle leesy nuance on the nose. Smooth and dry, with modest nuance to its understated flavors of red berries and spices. A firm spine of acidity gives this wine a slightly sour finish that would be ameliorated with food.

Wine Enthusiast (2011)86 pts

Fresh and a little confected-smelling, then more citrusy and snappy in the mouth, with pink grapefruit and citrusy flavors that make your lips pucker and your palate come alive. Crisp, zesty and well done for Argentine rosé. — M.S. (5/1/2012)
