Reviews and Ratings

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

This falls into my “insanity” category. It’s dense and rich but also lively and fresh. Loaded with savoury herbs, crushed dark berries and macerated plum. On the finish is linzer torte and Black Balzams liqueur. You can’t beat this price. 93 Points
Greg Hughes rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Leeeet's face it. Malbec, though it is beloved, can be kind of by the numbers and soft. This is a premium Argentine red that incorporates the wonderful structure Cab Sauv brings to blending. From Paraje Altamira, this crusher is racy and should live for a long time.
It is quite exotic and spicey.
It pours a beautiful garnet and purple. The aromas cross a broad range from five spice to plum and chocolate. Lots of acidity and perhaps balsam. Dusty tannins thay could use some cellaring.
The backbone is pretty pronounced. Acidic and fresh. Red and black fruit.
This would make an impressive gift for rich red fans. Put this wonderful wine with steak and chimichurri.
From Toko Vineyard, Paraje Altamira, Mendoza Zaha El Corte 2014 is a co-fermented blend of 78% Malbec and 22% Cabernet Sauvignon giving a rich, textured and savoury red with concentrated black and blueberry fruit flavours and great structure. Drink now and for the next five years. Pair with grilled meats. - Community Wine Reviews
