"I tasted a barrel sample of the 2008 Reserve, a wine with no specific release date and a price that will be in the $20-25 range. It is a blend of 88% Malbec, with the balance Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and Cabernet Sauvignon aged for 14 months in 60% new French and American oak. Purple-colored, it offers up an alluring perfume of wood smoke, spice box, violets, incense, black cherry, and plum. Smooth-textured with some underlying structure, this savory, well-balanced, flavorful effort can be enjoyed upon release but should evolve for several years." -RP 91
|Today, the wines of Don Miguel Gascon are crafted in the City of Mendoza at the same winery that was built by the Spanish visionary whose name bears it. Begun in 1884, the winery is an historic landmark in the history of Argentine winemaking, yet it houses some of the most advanced winemaking technology in the world. Our winery is also the home of 1884, an award-winning restaurant operated by world renowned Chef Francis Mallman.
