Lamadrid owns three vineyards in Agrelo: Finca La Matilde (planted 1929), Finca Lamadrid (planted 1973), and Finca La Suiza (planted 2004).

Lamadrid Cabernet Sauvignon

“Ripe, concentrated aromas of cassis and prune set up spicy black-fruit flavors. A loamy, meaty-tasting palate is generous and jammy. On the cusp of overripe, it’s a full-flavored fruit bomb.”

Lamadrid Malbec Matilde
"Cellar Selection" ('07), Wine Enthusiast; 94 points ('07), The Wine Advocate:
“The flagship 2007 Malbec Matilde was sourced from the same estate vineyard as the Gran Reserva, but from a particular parcel, with aging for 24 months in new French oak. This loaded effort displays more obvious (but well-integrated) oak, soaring aromas of black cherry, black raspberry, and exotic spices, full body, and a plush, velvety palate feel...”
