Septima 2013 Gran Reserva Mendoza
93 points
Nearly opaque bright dark medium color. Bright, buttery aromas and flavors of coconut buttercream, berry custard tart, and honeyed peppercorns with an oily, vibrant, dryish medium-full body and a warming, complex, medium-length finish that shows elements of creme brulee, roasted nuts, and earth with chewy tannins and moderate oak flavor. A robust, very structured, flavor-packed malbec-led red blend.

Septima 2014 Obra Malbec
92 points
Deep purple color. Aromas of cranberries, herb roasted nuts, creme brulee, and whisky barrel and incense with a supple, bright, dry medium body and a tingling, engaging, medium-length pomegranate, clay, roasted tomato, and oak finish with chewy, barky tannins and heavy oak flavor. A tightly wound, very dry and serious red wine.

MYTHIC 2013 Red Blend Mendoza
89 points
Medium dark bright indigo color. Bright, smoky, fruity aromas of smoked nuts, grilled blueberries, and malted chocolate caramel bar with an even, lively, dryish medium-to-full body and a warming, intricate, medium-length blood orange, peppery spice, and nuts finish with chewy tannins and moderate oak flavor. A nice spicy, smoky malbec that screams for Latin beef dishes.

Violet color. Bright, attractive aromas of cigar box and herbs, sour cherries, spiced apples and nuts, and pencil shavings with a satiny, tangy, fruity light-to-medium body and a smooth, engaging, relaxed toasty nut brittle, cedar, and pickled beets finish with fine, crunchy tannins and light oak flavor. A solid, juicy malbec with nice oak.

Nearly opaque deep purple color. Exotic, fruity floral aromas and flavors of boysenberry chutney, gherkin, and toffee with a silky, bright, dry-yet-fruity medium body and an effortless, appealing, crisp finish with notes of pencil shavings, apple custard tart, and nuts with fine tannins and light oak flavor. A nice spicy, juicy malbec.

Dark violet color. Bright, curious, savory smoky sweaty aromas and flavors of grilled tomatoes, marinated meat and beet, and chocolate goji berries with a supple, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a polished, brisk finish with notes of smoked nuts, pencil shavings, and charcoal with woody tannins and moderate oak flavor. A dry, smoky malbec for grilled meats.
