90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Karas Vineyards estate, Tierras de Armenia, is 1000-1100 meters above sea level and is approximately 2300 hectares, with over 400 hectares devoted to the planting of the vineyards. The soil properties are comprised of volcanic loam with stony texture spread with pockets of clay. Both international and indigenous varietals are planted in the vineyards, including Chardonnay, Viognier, Sauvignon Blanc, Kangun, Voskehat for whites and Malbec, Tannat, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon for reds.
This blend has an intense red color. One can feel elegant red fruits and berries’ aromas and some chocolate and vanilla notes coming from the barrels. In the mouth it is elegant, very creamy, has good acidity and sweet tannins. It is very persistent. (Syrah, Montepulciano, Malbec, Cab. Franc, Petit Verdot & Tannat)

"This is a more refined (and oakier) wine than the regular 2015 red reviewed. Showing better mid-palate finesse and precision, it adds a medley of blue fruit flavors and a hint of herbs. It finishes tight, with some acidity, leading to a juicy finish. It pulls in the oak rather well with time."
