Wine Spectator 91 points - Compact, gritty, stalky aromas are hard and herbal. This feels narrow and short on body, while flavors of generic berry fruits are a bit green and low on richness and depth. Oaky vanilla notes drive the finish.

Steve Tanzer 87 points - A big-shouldered red, with plenty of muscle behind the well-structured dark plum, blackberry and tobacco leaf flavors. Creamy midpalate, featuring a dense core of mushroom and savory herbal notes. Finishes with plenty of grip. Drink now through 2020. 9,000 cases made.-KM
The 2011 Malbec mixes fruit from different zones of Mendoza and ages in used oak barrels. It is clean and modern with aromas and flavors of cherries, sloes and slightly rustic tannins. Drink now-2015.
Red-ruby. Aromas of blackberry, spices, vanilla and menthol are enlivened by notes of herbs and pepper. Juicy, moderately dense and sweet, with a light touch to its straightforward flavors of medicinal dark fruits, licorice and menthol. Boasts a light touch but falls down a bit on the back end, finishing with a note of cough medicine. In need of more verve. -- Stephen Tanzer

Wine maker notes
On the nose, Ruca Malen Malbec Reserve shows red and black fruit reminiscent of cherries and plums and violet aromas. It is a complex, elegant wine, layered with concentrated, juicy flavors and sweet, velvety tannins. An edge of acidity keeps it fresh through the long finish. One year of aging takes place in 80% French and 20% American oak barrels of first and second -use.
