Argentine legend Opi Sadler is beloved by customers and critics alike for his rich reds. His sumptuous Waxed Bat Reserve is even richer, darker and more intense than the original. It also has dozens of illustrious accolades to its name—including a 93-point gold medal from Gilbert & Gaillard for this 2020 release.

Opi and his team hand harvested the ripest Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec from his favorite Mendoza vineyards. And since “Argentina has four excellent vintages in a row including 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020” (critic James Suckling), the quality of the grapes was truly top notch. After assembling the perfect blend, Opi gave the concentrated juice a 12-month slumber in the finest oak barrels. Over to G&G judges for what to expect in the glass:

“Smoke, ash and pepper on the nose accented by jammy red and black fruits. Very elegant palate both for the tannins and flavours. Intense fusion of fruit and oak with remarkable length.” Our two cents: its rich black fruit and toasty vanilla notes make it perfect for barbecued or roasted meats.
