97 points/Platinum Award, Decanter: "Very perfumed floral nuances scented with some fresh herbaceous notes, slightly tangy mineral nose too. Lovely freshness and chalky tannins, nice follow through and well-textured. Great fruit purity, attractive use of oak. Alcohol 13.8%. (DWWA 2020)"

95 points Tim Atkin, MW: "Planted on the younger, southern side of Paraje Altamira on poor soils, this is an outstanding Malbec from the richly talented Gabriel Bloise. True to his philosophy of avoiding the use of small new oak barrels, it’s a large foudre-aged red with bright red berry fruit, granular tannins, a hint of anise aniseed and engaging palate length. 2022-28."

93 points James Suckling: "Love the blackberry, nutmeg, dried-flower, mushroom and graphite aromas that follow through to a full body with chewy tannins and a light, herb and spice hint at the finish. Drink or hold. (4/2/20)"
