Natalie's Score: 94/100

The grapes for this wine come from four different vineyards, picked at four different times from old vines (historic rows). Long finish with notes of dried tobacco leaves, leather and spice. Espresso aromas on the nose with fleshy ripe black plum flavours on the palate. Full-bodied and smooth. Lovely, long dark spice finish. Truly one of Argentina's flagship wineries. Try it with rare tenderloin.

Malbec food pairings: lamb cutlets, beef tenderloin, cheddar cheese, herb-rubbed roast chicken.

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.
