This Malbec has made Wine Spectator’s Top 100 List twice for a reason —it is quintessentially expressive of Mendoza and impossible to replicate.
Spice and black cherry cola aromas with notes of cocoa. The berry flavors pop on the palate from its depth and lively acidity, finishing with hints of espresso.
Pairs well with foods such as venison or wild game, steak, pork, quail, all types of lamb, and medium-strong cheeses.
A great range of aromas from flowers through smoke to elderberries, pull you into this powerful, structured yet graceful malbec in which the fine-grained tannins are already beautifully integrated, gently turning ever drier through the long, polished finish. Mostly from old vines in Altamira, plus some wine from higher-altitude vineyards.James Suckling February 2019
Bright ruby. Vibrant scents of dark berries, bitter chocolate and violet. Sweeter and a bit lusher than the Malbec Paraje Altamira even if it doesn't have quite that wine's underlying minerality, complexity or juicy lift. But the intense black fruit and bitter chocolate flavors are palate-saturating and satisfying. The pliant finish features substantial broad, lush tannins. (a blend of vineyards)Vinous September 2019
From 50-year-old vines in La Consulta and Gualtallary, high-altitude subregions of the Uco Valley, this needs air to get beyond its charred-oak notes. Then the fruit comes up, meeting the wood in warm roasted-plum-and-cherry flavors. It’s a friendly, mellow red for a winter evening.Wine & Spirits October 2019
