“Very ripe aromas of black fruits, smoky minerals and bitter chocolate, plus a whiff of truffley forest floor. Sweet, supple and quite dense, but showing terrific inner-mouth lift for such a ripe wine. With its crushed-berry flavors, this wine shows the most obvious early sweetness of these appellation-labeled Malbecs. The substantial tannins arrive late and build, giving the wine the support for a slow evolution in bottle. But there's no austerity even today.”

“I also tasted the just-bottled 2017 Appellation Paraje Altamira Malbec, and this is the one that stands out in 2017. It has more finesse and subtleness, with harmony, balance and elegance … Bravo!”
