Desquiciado Malbec 2018
Rated 91 points Reviewed by Luis Gutiérrez – The Wine Advocate
Issue Date: 31st Oct 2019

The ripe and fruit-driven 2018 Malbec had floral aromas and an expressive nose, mixing violets and red berries with a spicy twist from the eight months that half of the wine matured in oak barrels. This is a co-fermentation with 8% Pinot Noir and 7% Cabernet Franc with indigenous yeasts. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins, focused, pure flavors and a long finish. 36,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in December 2018.

*Desquiciado now produces some 120,000 bottles per vintage. Serious and harmonious wines, mostly with grapes from Gualtallary, even if they are open to experimentation with grapes from other zones.

Lagunilla Reserva Rioja 2014 – YEAR’S BEST RIOJA WINES by Wine & Spirits 2019
91 points (Best Buy)
Issue Date: November 2019

Broad in its black fruit and saturated with oak, this is a ripe, smoky Rioja with prominent fruit-skin tannins that lend it a gamey edge. It benefits from air, bringing tangy orange acidity to add some structural tension. For a grilled sirloin.
