"Argentina's bright sunshine, altitude (the higher the better), and pure Andean snowmelt combine to make Argentinean Malbec one of the juiciest, most delicious, and most sought-after reds of the moment — and this limited-edition Reserve comes from Opi Sadler. Called 'the magician' by his winemaking peers, he's a Malbec master who's been on a phenomenal run of trophy wins and medal successes. This steak-worthy red is the next step up from his “regular” 2008 Malbec that won top trophy at the Decanter World Wine Awards. Think even older vines, even more generous barrel-aging time, and even more mouthfilling flavor in your glass. Time fire up the grill … Very dark red, almost opaque in the glass, with inviting aromas of blackberry, cherry and rich, chocolaty spice. On the palate, notes of coffee and smoky oak mingle with all of the powerfully ripe plum flavor you can expect from Opi's low-yielding vines. You're in for a treat. " Best 2011-2016
