In the very heart of Clos de los Siete (Uco Valley, Mendoza), Bodega DiamAndes produces intense, complex, elegant wines for enjoying now or for laying down. In this unique terroir - a single block of 130 hectares at 1,000 metres above sea level in the Andes foothills - our proud Bordeaux heritage converges with the very best of Argentinean expertise. DiamAndes' Uco Grande Reserve is a blended wine made with a majority of Malbec, the king of the Argentine grape varieties. Produced exclusively from grapes grown on our terroir, Malbec gives the wine roundness, a voluptuous fruitiness and exceptionally velvety tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon complements the blend with its structure and complexity. DiamAndes Grande Reserve is aged in French oak barrels for a minimum of 20 months and kept at the bodega for three years before being released onto the market. Intense and seductive, its exquisite balance gives it unrivalled elegance. A great wine that is both modern and typically Argentine, and which combines a substantial capacity to age with an unforgettable explosion of flavours on the palate.

Wine SpectatorGood cut and length to the dried meat, roasted plum and brambly flavors. Smoke and spice accents linger with notes of fig paste on the finish. Drink now. 2,500 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe 2009 Gran Reserva is a blend of 75% Malbec and 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, and you feel it, since the Cabernet grapes have strong aromatics that tend to dominate in blends. Other than that, the wine is very oaky at the moment, which is not a good sign for a 2009. There's good fruit there, but the palate remains coated by edgy tannins, and whether the fruit will survive them remains a question mark to me. The wine was aged for 24 months in 75% new French oak. Drink 2015-2018.
