98 points James Suckling: "So bright and aromatic with flowers and blackberries, as well as some black olives. Full-bodied with lots of tannins, yet they are so fine and integrated and spread across the palate. This is all whole-cluster fermentation and 18 months in large oak casks. Needs about four or five years to come together. (8/2/21)"
97 points Joaquín Hidalgo (Vinous): "The 2019 Malbec Adrianna Vineyard River Stone comes from a parcel off the Adrianna Vineyard in Gualtallary, planted at an altitude of 4,400 feet in a dried river bed. Aged for 20 months in new and used French barrels, it is a rich purple in the glass thanks to the intense sunlight. The nose offers plum, sour cherry and blueberry with herbs, lavender, hints of balsam and oaky aromas such as cedar and sandalwood. The compact palate has fine, taut tannins; more lean than muscular overall. This is a balanced and remarkably energetic high-altitude wine, all solar energy, concentrated soils and the untrammeled freshness that comes with a cool region. Drink: 2021-2039. (Nov 2021)"
95 points Tim Atkin, MW: "(13.8%). White, calcium carbonate-coated river stones are the terroir here, producing a Malbec that combines density, power and high-altitude freshness. Glossy, textured and enticingly perfumed, all violet and star anise, this is deftly wooded, layered and well-structured, with firm tannins, some Asian spices and a chalky finish. 2025-31. (2022)"
