Gabriel Israel rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

A bit too acidic to my taste. Needs to be served a bit colder than usual to enjoy. Improves after an hour. Full body.dark berries and plums with hint of mint and cassis. Nice medium-tight finish. Overall good, but had better Malbecs within the $18-$20 price range.
Medium bright ruby. Brooding, slightly medicinal aromas of blackberry, licorice, bitter chocolate and mint. The surprisingly sweet and fat in the mouth, with cassis, licorice and dark chocolate flavors that are primary without coming off as austere. This has the stuffing to support its substantial dusty tannins. Score: 88 Source: Stephen Tanzer, International Wine Cellar

  Best Books of the Year

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
