Heather Wall rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

Very impressed with this lovely opaque Malbec. A sensory overload of ripe red berries, cherry cordial, violets and blossoms, garrigue and a lift of earthiness. Smooth and dry with a lengthy assorted warm berry compote finish. Scored a whopping 94 points from Wine Enthusiast and well deserved. Enjoy this wine tonight with a finer cut of grilled red meat but this wine will reward you over the next 10+ years. $30 a little hard sell but worth the price for the performance.
Tasted: October 2016
Matt Steeves rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

SonVida Malbec 2012. Wow, what a delicious, robust and elegant single vineyard expression of Mendoza Malbec. The grapes were hand harvested from their Paraje Altamira vineyard at an elevation of over 1km. Rich dark berries, plum, pepper, cacao, underbrush, leather, and cedar on the nose and finish. This wine was ranked #4 in the world by Wine Enthusiast in 2014. An impressive Malbec that is showing great now and will only gain further complexity over the next decade and beyond. Tasted October 2016. 93 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
