92 Points - Wine Advocate
"2018 was a good year for Cabernet Sauvignon in the classical zone of Mendoza, and the peppery 2018 Appellation Agrelo Cabernet Sauvignon shows good ripeness and typicity. It is fresher than 2017 and with better-integrated oak too. It's fruit driven and juicy, with fine-grained tannins, very representative of the variety. 46,600 bottles produced." -LG, 10/31/19

91 Points - Vinous
"Bright medium ruby. Complex nose melds cassis, black cherry, violet, lilac, tar, black pepper and spices ("nice pyrazines," says winemaker Vigil). Wonderfully supple, pliant Cabernet with serious depth of texture and the structure for a slow evolution in bottle. Finishes quite dry and slightly salty, with fine-grained tannins and excellent length. I prefer this to the San Carlos Cabernet Franc." -ST, Sep/2019
