93 Pts, James Suckling
This offer is really an easy one. Two of the greatest wine pioneers from two different hemispheres (Baron Eric Rothschild from ‘Chateau Lafite Rothschild’ and Nicolas Catena from ‘Catena’) join forces to make a delicious, Bordeaux style Malbec, crafted nearly 4600 feet above sea level and offered for a fantastic price. This beauty that James Suckling called, “Pure Malbec” is a case buy all the way.
91+ Pts, Parker’s Wine Advocate – 91 Pts, Stephen Tanzer (Vinous)
This is arid, high altitude Cabernet (think Howell Mtn.) from vineyards at over 3,000 ft in elevations. It’s bright, bright Cabernet with zip and zest – due to its perfect acidity – which makes this an over-the-top food friendly wine. However, don’t let how easy it is to drink full you, there are so many interesting notes of leather, spice, tobacco, …. And as Mr. Tanzer points out it “This serious Cabernet finishes with excellent length.
95 Points (Gold Medal), 2020 Decanter Wine World Awards
Well… I guess the cat is out of the bag on this one. Couldn’t keep it from Asimov at the New York Times or Decanter. Don’t let the price tag fool you. The 2019 Fabre-Montmayou Cabernet Franc is a gorgeous & serious wine that should be enjoyed like a Saturday nighter. Dark color and full throttle as you might expect out of the gate, giving way to pure fruit and a touch of that Cheval Blanc type jalapeno flavor that so intrigues lovers of world class Cab Franc.
91 Pts, Decanter Wine Awards
It’s hard to imagine a wine that delivers more bang for your buck and consistency than what Herve Fabre is able to produce from his 100+ year old vines each vintage. Last year, his Malbec Reserva landed on Wine Enthusiast’s Top 100 Buys of the Year. Tasted last week, I expect similar accolades will roll in soon for this one. It’s a big, full-bodied Malbec with The 2018 Reserve Malbec from the heart of Mendoza is garnet in color with inviting aromas of raspberry pie, sage, herbs and roasted mushrooms. This is a wine that pairs perfectly with some cooler weather.
