97 points James Suckling: "This is a really contrastive, rich and energetic malbec with crushed berries, as well as peaches and orange peel. Full body and soft tannins, yet always fresh and vivid. A little semillon in this from the blend plantings. Drink or hold. (4/2/20)"

94 points Joaquín Hidalgo (Vinous): "[$140 list] Since 2015, this wine has been made using grapes from two vineyards located about a thousand meters above sea level, one in Angélica in Lunlunta, Maipú, and the other in Nicasia in San Carlos, Uco Valley, both harvested in two stages and fermented in open barrels, 20% with whole bunches. Dark purple in the glass. The alluring nose delivers ripe dark fruit with hints of herbs and fine wood that make for a balsamic red with further notes of thyme and violets. Sugary at first with good volume; the gentle tannins allow the wine to flow genially in a classical, nuanced Mendoza Malbec style. Drink: 2020-2028. (Oct 2020)"

94 points Tim Atkin, MW: "(13.8%). This sumptuously packaged red is the only Catena Malbec that doesn’t come from a single vineyard. Instead, it combines fruit from Lunlunta and Paraje Altamira. Dense, plush and well upholstered, it has impressive grip and focus, layers of dark berry and violet and a sheen of coffee bean oak. Built to age. 2023-33. (2021)"
