Reviews and Ratings

Perry rated this wine as 93/100
Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Pretty amazing stuff. Loads of black plum, huckleberry, linzer, smoke, coffee, pressed and dried flowers. It is sanguine, peppery, and brooding. 92 Points.
Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier reviewed this wine as follows:

A floral bouquet of dried rose petals and violet, as well as ripe raspberries and dark berries, and a touch of leather. Flavours of juicy blackberries with velvety tannins, a nice acidity, and cocoa at the finish.

Tasted November 2017
Callejón Del Crimen Gran Reserva (2014) is robust and big 100% Malbec produced by the Finca La Luz winery. Dark purple in the glass with a pronounced nose of dark black cherries, earthy underbrush and smoky wood. Tannins are firm and the wine has a mouth-watering acidity with a long, warm finish (14.8% abv). -Community Wine Reviews

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.
