92 Points: 2008 Decero Mini Ediciones Petit Verdot, Remolinos Vineyard

This powerful offering will be at its best from 2016 to 2023+.’

91 Points: 2008 Decero Amano, Remolinos Vineyard

‘2008 Decero Amano is a blend of 64% Malbec, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, with the balance Petit Verdot and Tannat aged for 20 months in new French oak. The aromatics are reticent but with coaxing offer up notes of spice box, tobacco, and assorted black fruits. Savory, ripe, and plush on the palate, it displays a suave personality with good volume and length. Give it 2-3 years to fully blossom and drink it from 2013 to 2023.’

2009 Decero Malbec, Remolinos Vineyard

‘2009 Decero Malbec (100%) was aged predominantly in 30% new French oak with 10% of the wine aged in tank. Notions of spice box, lavender, cedar, and black cherry set the stage for a forward, ripe, savory Malbec with good depth and length. Drink this excellent value over the next 5-6 years.’

2009 Decero Malbec, Remolinos Vineyard

‘How things have changed. Malbec today is universally recognised as Argentina’s signature grape variety. The potential was always there, but its secret was locked into the high, semi-desert soils of the Andes. It took a handful of outsiders, treating it with respect in the vineyard and cellar, to reveal malbec’s potential for greatness…. At the Swiss-owned Finca Decero, the 2009 Decero Malbec is a joy, all vivid summer pudding fruit, a nip of tannin and vibrant freshness.’
