Natalie's Score: 90/100

A robust, richly-layered Argentine red wine made from the country's classic Malbec grape. Smoky with lots of toasty oak on the nose and palate. Aromas of dark berries and plums. The grapes are grown in the Finca La Linda and Vistalba vineyards in Mendoza. The wine is aged in French oak barrels for 12 months. Pair with grilled meats.

Reviews and Ratings

Wineboy rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Black plums leap from the glass along with a touch of leather on the nose. Beautiful velvety textures. Nice weight - not overdone. Ample oak for a steak pairing, yet not so much a roasted meat would be overwhelmed. One of the best years for this wine.
Craig Haynes WSET III, FWS rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Shows positive hallmarks from 12 months aging in French oak casks, this approachable Malbec delivers black cherry, raspberry, spice and cedar. Good value.

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.
