Wine Advocate 89 points - The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva is complemented by 4% Syrah and 1% Cot (Malbec) and aged in French barrels for one year. In this warm vintage they harvested three weeks before the normal date by tasting the grapes and without knowing it, they ended up harvesting at more or less the same amount of accumulated temperature as in previous years. The wine has 13.5% alcohol and 6.1 grams of acidity, which are fantastic parameters. It has a fresh, herbal, aromatic nose with notes of spices (paprika, black pepper) and pine nuts, with bright red fruit. Fluid, terse, and medium-bodied, with good freshness and very fine tannins, this is a great Cabernet at a great price. I tasted the 2006 next to this and it was showing very young, so this is drinkable now but will also age if you want to keep the bottles. About 750,000 bottles were produced, so it should be readily available. Drink now-2019. (Jun 2014)
