Jon Steeves rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Biting into a dark chocolate coated Acai berry is the most realistic sensation I can relate to the tasting of this magnificent Réserva Malbec. Vinified with ancient Mendoza Malbec fruit from vines planted in 1920. Deeply concentrated and rich with an Uber full body and high alcohol. Although declared at 14.1%. Reminiscent of appassimento style. Ripe juicy Pomegranate, black plum, savoury spices and mocha dark chocolate on the palate. I enjoyed this beauty with dark chocolate and could easily pair with sashimi, tuna tartare stack and is easily sippable on its own. Tasted March 2017. 93 points #BespokeTastings
Monique Sosa rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Pure heaven on the palate! Pronounced aromas of black plum, anise, cardamom, leather, and cedar lead way to ripe fleshy blackberry, black plum, black licorice notes, and a lingering tobacco leaf and spice finish. It's rich, robust and warrants a meditation moment at every sip. Enjoy this full bodied complex Malbec with beef tartar, salumi platters or braised/roast meats.

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.
