I was expecting a dessert/late harvest type wine; which this bottle is certainly not. I'm guessing Valle de Guadalupe and the surrounding areas are much too warm for a late harvest type wine.

The taste is an off dry Merlot, which is odd for what was expected. There's some plum and wood in there, but I still would be hard pressed to give this wine a good rating given the high expectations I had for it.

We tried this bottle as a Sommelier suggestion in Boa steakhouse in Vegas. Perhaps it was the excellent beef and great setting, all in the table enjoyed this wine greatly. Too bad it was their last bottle of this wine.

It's probably one of the strongest wines I've tasted at 14.8° alcohol, but it manages to come out balanced despite all that booze. Strong leather/bell pepper taste with tobacco hinted on the smell. I probably wouldn't pair this wine with more subtle cooking, but it was perfect for a medium-rare Rib eye on the bone.

Cheers!

Dryish white with a nice nose of citrics and perhaps some apple; nice for a supermarket wine.

Interesting wine, young and strong. Deep purple red with nose of blackberry and cassis with some chocolate and spice. Balanced in the mouth, nice sweetness but not overpowering. Great finish.

Garnet colored with good clarity, leather and spice with red fruits on the nose, velvety smooth on the mouth with an finish that goes on forever. Amazing wine!

Saved this bottle for 6 years. Popped and poured; garnet brick colored whit a nose of leather with notes of plum. Well balanced in the mouth with mellowed tannins and a very nice long finish.

Nice balance between sweetness and acidity, notes of mango and ripe melon. Good value.

Probably past its prime but still drinkable. Strong nose of bell pepper and leather with some hints of fruit. In the mouth those tannins are definitively gone but it's predominantly acid with a hot and short finish.

Very nice wine at a great price. Deep rubi colored with nice cherry and spice on the nose, on the mouth it was slightly more acidic than I expected from the nose, but it was beautifully balanced. Nice finish, a little hot.

This bottle sells for less than US$10 in Mexico, making it a killer QPR! Deep purple in color with lots of cassis and a smooth mouth, perhaps lacking a little acidity. Great value.

Had at a very rough time. Ruby red colored with a nice nose of leather and spices, with some berries hinting through. In the mouth it is balanced with a refreshing acidity. Had after a 2007 Malbec and these wines couldn't have been more different. Nice finish, probably can still mature an mellow those tannins.

Consistent with several 2007 Malbecs I've tasted. Deep purple in color with good clarity. Nose of red fruits, hints of chocolate and tobacco, perhaps a little leather. Smooth and balanced on the mouth, perhaps lacking a little acidity. Nice finish.

Had a bottle with dinner at an argentine steak house in Cuernavaca. Lots of red fruit aromas with a slightly sweet mouth; nothing overly complex. I didn't expect it to hold it's own against an 800 g piece of Bife de Chorizo (Ribeye Steak) but it had enough structure hold its own.

Deep red, almost purple; expected for a wine this young. Clarity was OK.

Lots of berries and red fruits with hints of chocolate and some wood. Velvety smooth in the mouth; excellent balance with plenty of fruit and very nice acidity. Extra long finish.

I bought this wine upon a suggestion from the wine shop; probably the best Malbec I've had, an excellent example of what can be done with a varietal.

Ruby colored, a little too brown for a wine this young. Clarity was OK.

Has a definite herbal smell with notes of bell pepper and some red fruits. On the mouth it's dry and slightly acidic but still comes out balanced; it's lacking some fruit for my preferences. Finish is adequate. It improved a little bit after some sips, but I still expected more from a "special edition" bottle like this.
