92 points James Suckling: "Blackberries, dark spices and cloves. A hint of iodine, too. Ripe blackberries on the palate with a broad, dense tannin frame. A little richer and more generous than the 2021, with more black fruit than blue fruit, but less taut and linear on the palate. Starting to open up now. Oak-free. Drink from 2023. (5/3/22)"

90 points Joaquín Hidalgo (Vinous): "The 2020 Malbec Aruma comes from different vineyards in the Uco Valley, Mendoza and spent a year in fine lees. This vintage delivers remarkably intense, fruity notes of candied plum, violets and a pure, alluring bed of herbs. Harsh in the mouth, the juice of the region combines with the 2020 climate to energize a palate of potent but balanced alcohol. This is a big but nuanced red. Drink: 2021-2030. (Nov 2021)"
