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 rich and fresh red with dried berry, milk chocolate, spice and walnut. Full body, velvety tannins and a savory finish. From old vines in Consulta. Drink now or hold.James Suckling May 2016
Saturated bright ruby. Lively aromas of blackberry, licorice pastille and violet. Richer, deeper and weightier than the Malbec Paraje Altamira, offering smooth flavors of blackberry, blueberry, violet and dark chocolate. Finishes compellingly sweet, with supple tannins and lingering black fruits and chocolate--and without any loss of focus or energy. Great Malbec for the price--or any price!Vinous July 2017
Despite humid conditions in Mendoza in 2015, this old vins Malbec shows a fine combination of blackberry, smoke and mocha aromas. It's in tip-top shape on the palate, although the acidity is a bit wiry. Oaky flavors of vanilla and mocha work well with its black cherry and blackberry fruit, which is unwavering on the finish.Wine Enthusiast February 2018
Very refined, with vibrant red fruit and spice flavors supported by fresh acidity. Lively crushed raspberry notes linger on the rich finish, with dark chocolate accents.Wine Spectator March 2018
