Laura Catena is in charge here. All hail a wine with an awesome woman with a wine heritage killing it! Super into this. Give it a minute or so to get a breath of air then appreciate its voluptuousness. It is supple and earthy and has an attitude. This Malbec may just have made me its bitch.

Spectacular depth of flavor. Silky plums and lovely umame notes

Tastes of not fully ripe red berries and is a bit tart. I’m not getting any of the dark fruit flavors that the pro reviewers seem to be experiencing. The finish here is also a bit short. Not sure if this just needs more time in the bottle, but I’m not quite feeling this one.

Had a surprising combination of citrus and minerality for a Malbec. Got better the second day but didn’t love it.

Really nice. Laid back coco, velvet finish. Dark inky in a good way.

Earthy notes, plumb, rich in body, well balanced finish. Great dinner wine. Steak, mushrooms, haricot vert.

Bracingly acidic and fruit forward. Super young with ripe raspberries ans cherries and not a ton of structure. Good, but may not age well.
