93 points James Suckling: "Some balsamic savoriness to the baked black-cherry fruit. Violets, iodine, oyster sauce, black pepper and a hint of vanilla, too. Complex, tight and chewy with juicy, supple fruit that’s tightly wound. Give it two years to settle. Drink from 2024. (5/3/22)"

91 points Joaquín Hidalgo (Vinous): "[$30 list] The 2019 Malbec Benegas Lynch from Gualtallary, Uco Valley, was aged in barrels for 18 months. Purple in color. The jammy nose offers notes of dark fruit, herbs, elegant oaky notes and a hint of cedar. This is taut on the palate with reactive tannins and a juicy freshness that enhances the intensity. This is a potent wine that will improve in the bottle. Drink: 2024-2034. (Nov 2022)"

90 points Luis Gutiérrez (Wine Advocate): "I found riper and darker aromas in the 2019 Estate Single Vineyard Finca La Encerrada produced with Malbec from the property in Gualtallary Finca La Encerrada and with high ripeness at 14.9% alcohol. This matured in French barrique for 12 months. It was bottled in February 2021. Drink: 2023-2026. (Nov 2022)"
