Jennifer Havers rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Lovely and lots of flavour! Aromas of blueberry, blackberry, vanilla, dried herbs, smoke and spice. This wine is full bodied and bold on the palate, with firm, drying tannins, vibrant fruit, and a spicy, leathery finish. Enjoy with a marinated flank steak.
Michael rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Very smooth, one of the best Malbecs we have tasted for the price.
Greg Hughes rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Absolutely stellar Malbec from Piattelli, in high-up Cafayate. Higher altitudes means more skin development and better aromatics and acidity.
You definitely see a beautiful rich colour from the skins, here. Rich and glass-coating purple.
Aromas of black currant, plum, mint, smoke. Extroverted aromatics jump out at you.
The flavours are exactly what you want from Argentine Malbec. It's rich, but not flabby. There is plenty of structure (acid and tannin); giving it form.
Similar dark fruit (currant, plum), with some dried mint and herb.
This has some good cellar potential too. Give it half a decade, no sweat.
A great pairing would maybe be a classic tourtiere or some Korean beef.

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.
