Jenny Ratcliffe-Wright CWM rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Outstanding value for a wine that shows the true typicity of the Malbec grape. Succulent and juicy on the palate, smoother than a silk stocking. Squashed blueberries oozing out of the glass with violet and dried herb. The classic hint of meatiness. There is a delicate power to this wine. The 12 months of French oak detail is certainly present but does not overpower the cocoa finish. Try it with grilled rib eye with a blue cheese and rocket crust

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
