James Suckling Review
Rated 92 Points
Tight and lively red with aromas and flavors of blackberries, licorice, stone and dust. Medium to full body. Creamy texture from the fine tannins. Drink or hold.
Rated 90 Points
This is one of the best quality-to-price red blends on the shelves, it is so balanced and smooth. The Cab Franc spices up the calm fruit of the Malbec. I would buy a case at a time and pull it out for any occasion.
Wine Tasting Notes
In the last twenty years Santa Julia has been a protagonist in the transformation of Argentina's wine industry. This new phase of its evolution is the result of a constant search for improvement that characterizes our winemaking team. For several years, our team has been working on realizing the potential of the Uco Valley, expressed now in the range of Santa Julia Reserva wines.
- COLOR: Red violet with good intensity.
- AROMA: Complex nose with Malbec - a bouquet of plums, cherries & jam expressing both spicy and vanilla notes, blending wonderfully with blueberry and violet aromas of the Cabernet Franc.
- FLAVOR: In the mouth, Cabernet Franc adds dark fruit & spice to the velvet tannins and rich Malbec flavor, making a perfect combination that results in a complex, elegant wine of great concentration.
