We are very pleased to announce that our Cicchitti Gran Reserva and Melipal Nazarenas Vineyard Malbecs are once again earning high marks from the critics! In the October edition of Wine Enthusiast, Cicchitti's Gran Reserva 2012 will receive 93 points and Melipal's Nazarenas Vineyard 2012 earns a 94. They will also be included on the "Editor's Choice" list.
The Cicchitti Gran Reserva Malbec is inky purple in color, with aromas of spice box, tobacco and black cherry. Thick and sweet, it has excellent depth, concentration and superb length. The May issue of Wine & Spirits Magazine gave 92 points to the 2008 vintage and recommended a pairing of beef empanadas. We think it's also delicious with mushroom and sausage pasta, barbecue or cumin spiced dishes. Or cellar it for a special occasion.
