Aromas of smoky oak and cherry. Mouthwatering, penetrating flavors of ripe red and black cherries, red berries. Quite rich and velvety on the palate, and finishes with just enough grip to make it a real winner with food. This is some seriously sexy Malbec!
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (RP): 93
"The 2011 Amorio is my favorite from the lineup, a blend of 85% Malbec and 15% Petit Verdot from Vista Flores in the Uco Valley. It has a wonderful, complex, subtle and elegant bouquet with a sense of freshness and some earthy hints. The palate is silky, with very fine tannins and great acidity. Subtle and easy to drink, I love this elegant red. It is a good value."
Stephen Tanzer (ST): 91
"Good bright, deep ruby. High-toned aromas of black cherry, bitter chocolate, licorice pastille, sweet oak and leather. Very sweet and lush, with black cherry and dark berry flavors complemented but not overwhelmed by sexy oak. Finishes broad, thick and long, with lots of chewy, sweet, tongue-dusting tannins."
Wine Spectator (WS): 90
"Fig, dark plum and dried cherry flavors are well-integrated and balanced in this rich, focused style, firmly tannic, with plenty of power behind the notes of graphite and hot stone. Finishes with hints of sandalwood and nutmeg."
