Heather Wall rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

There's some power wine making behind this label-Louis Vuitton-Moet Hennessy. How is that for luxury wine?! The vines age 45 years on average and grapes are entirely hand harvested at altitudes surpassing 1000 metres. The beauty in this glass is deep ruby with a purple hue. Juicy ripe dark/blue berries, plum, bakers chocolate, anise, leather, tobacco. Tannins are youthful and acidity medium+. The length is long on a warm fruit driven finish. At $18 I would buy two for the cellar and taste in a few years. Roasted rack of lamb, salted grilled steak.
Tasted: December 2014

This has a ripe, rich compact nose of crushed blackberry/mulberry, vanillin, chocolate and dried herbs. I like the way all this folds together on the nose. It's full bodied, fairly soft, dense and rich. No holes or corners. Excellent length. A bit youthfully chewy but not the least austere. Tasted November 2014

Natalie's Review

Terrazas De Los Andes Reserva Malbec 2011, Mendoza, Argentina: Love it! Meaty and mouth-watering with gorgeous ripe dark berries. Smooth and full-bodied. Juiciness and acidity cry out for a food companion, especially for the hearty meat variety. Decant 1 hour. Some blackberry and anise on the finish. The grapes for this wine are grown at an altitude of 1067 metres above sea level, which gives the wine balance and a nervy edge due to excellent drainage for the vintages and cool microclimate for the grapes. Pair this dark beauty with a juicy steak. Drink: 2013-2017. 29280 14% XD 750 mL  $17.95 Score: 91/100. December 6, 2014 Best Value Red Wine. Voluptuous Veal Wine  Full Review

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.
