Wine critics reviewsReviews by Parker

The first impression of the 2018 Selección Personal was of great nuance and subtleness. The wine comes from a different vineyard each year, but in the last few years, it has come from a place called Marrate in Labastida, one of Mendoza's favorite places for high-end wines, a place with great potential. This is beautifully textured with lots of dry extract, with grip and depth; Mendoza has a lot of vines there, and some of them are quite old. The wine is perfumed, unusually floral and aromatic for a Tempranillo, which always contain a small percentage of other grapes (perhaps 3% or 4% Graciano...). There are some 500-liter oak barrels that were previously used for the fermentation of the whites. 5,344 bottles produced. It was bottled in May 2020.
