2018 Trivento Reserve Malbec$11.00Wine Advocate 89: The largest production from Trivento is the 2018 Reserve Malbec, with some 8.5 million bottles. It's a straightforward, fruit-driven, fresh and drinkable wine that mixes Malbec grapes from Luján de Cuyo, which provides round fruit, and the Valle de Uco, which adds freshness. Only part of the wine has contact with oak, and the wine comes through as fruit forward, very clean and juicy, like biting into a ripe cluster of Malbec fruit, refreshing and very tasty. Delicious textbook Malbec. It's not easy to make so many liters of wine of this quality at an unbeatable price.
2018 Altocedro Cabernet Sauvignon$19.00Wine Advocate 90: The creamy and spicy 2018 Año Cero Cabernet Sauvignon seemed to have a little more influence from the élevage in oak barrels (only one-third of the wine for ten months) than its siblings. It has varietal notes, balsamic and herbal, with blackberry aromas and an austere palate with serious tannins. It felt a bit austere compared with the others. It needs food. 27,000 bottles produced.
2018 Altocedro ‘Año Cero’ Tempranillo$19.00Tasting Notes Complex black cherry flavours with some spice and well integrated tannins. A great example of quality Tempranillo produced outside of its Spanish homeland.
