About

93

"From elevations over 5,000 feet, the fruit sourced for this impressive red is grown on sandy loan with calcareous gravels. Aged in new and used French oak (70%) and in concrete vats (30%) for 12 months. This is a wonderfully expressive and impressive red. Black cherry, bloody, grilled meat and high acidity intensifies a graphite thread. Black pepper is subtly integrated into the black fruit. A powerhouse with excellent drinkability." - The Tasting Panel (July 2020), 93 pts

"Crushed plums, mulberries and waxberries with a herbal undertone. Very lifted acidity with crunchy black cherries on the palate, yet it ends somewhat abruptly. A little steely. Drink now." - James Suckling (April 2nd 2020), 90 pts

"Also from the estate vineyard in the Uco Valley, the 2018 Malbec Estate is 100% Malbec that was brought up in 70% new French oak. This deeply hued effort has a big bouquet of blue fruits, underbrush, leafy herbs, damp earth, and a touch of rare steak. Complex, meaty, and medium to full-bodied, it has solid purity of fruit, ripe tannins, and a great finish." - Jeb Dunnuck (August 2020), 90 pts
