Tasting Notes

Deep ruby-crimson center with purple reflections and moderate staining tears. The wine is complete and balanced, beginning with aromas of plum, black cherry, blackberry, and peppered blueberry, which are complemented by black fig, licorice, and mocha. Round and plush on the palate with a very fine tannin profile around the edges, it’s silky and fine, with attractive violet and black-olive tones lingering on the finish. Drink now–2026.

Wine Enthusiast

90 Points // A light ruby color is less dark than most Mendoza Malbecs, while earthy, spicy aromas suggest currant and plum. The palate on this vineyard-specific wine from Altamira is jammy and a touch creamy. Spicy, lightly herbal flavors of plum and red-berry fruits offer a leathery accent. A supple and soft finish says drink now. MICHAEL SCHACHNER

James Suckling

94 Points // A dense, focused red with plum, dark-peach and stone character. Full to medium body. Solid core of fruit. Creamy, polished tannins. Deep and long. Want to drink it now and beyond. Drink now or hold.
