91 pts Wine Advocate #245 Oct 2019

The 2017 Reserva Old Vine Malbec comes from three old vineyards: Altamira, Chacón and El Cepillo in La Consulta. It fermented in concrete vats with indigenous yeasts and matured in French oak barrels for 18 months. It’s a very traditional and expressive Malbec from la Consulta, with floral aromas and some spicy, smoky and herbal aromas. The palate reveals abundant, grainy tannins and a dry, serious finish. It needs powerful food and/or some more time in bottle. 11,700 bottles were filled in October 2018. 2019-2026

 

90 pts James Suckling March 2019

Ripe red-plum and currant aromas lead to a palate that has a smooth array of ripe tannins that carry plum-paste and black-tea flavors into the smooth finish. Drink or hold.
