Chakana Winery 'Estate' Red 2016
93  James Suckling 
James Suckling 93 "Violet and blackberry aromas. A hint of menthol on the nose and a cool, slightly minty note on the finish. An interesting, full-bodied, tannic red that has a hint of sweetness at the close. Drink or hold."  Wine Advocate 90 "The 2016 Estate Selection Red Blend was produced

Altos 'Guatallary' Malbec 2013
96  Tim Atkin 
Tim Atkins 96 Master of Wine  “The most aromatic and the most refined of Altos’ sub-regional Malbecs, this is sourced from comparatively young vineyards. Scented, subtle and very chalky, it’s a classic example of a new style of Argentinean Malbec. Textured and very pure, this is classy winemaking

Altos 'Altamira' Malbec 2013
95  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 95 "Seeing the differences between the Appellation Malbecs in 2013 is splitting hairs. The 2013 Malbec Appellation Altamira is sourced from the alluvial terraces of the Tunuyán River in Altamira where the soils are very rich in calcium carbonate, the ideal for Altos las Hormigas in

Altos 'Altamira' Malbec 2015
96  Tim Atkin 
Tim Atkins 96 Master of Wine "“The Altos team only made one Appellation wine in 2015, alas, but it’s still a very impressive release, sourced from a single grower in Paraje Altamira. Subtle oak, aromas of orange zest and avatar of roses, crunchy blackberry fruit, fine tannins and wonderful

Chakana Winery 'Estate' Red 2015
94  Tim Atkin 
Tim Atkin 94 "The blend of this wine used to change every year, but has now settled on Malbec with 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Cabernet Franc, combining elements from Paraje Altamira, Gualtallary and Chacayes. Fresh, elegant and beautifully balanced, it’s another triumph from Chakana."  Vinous

Altos 'Vista Flores' Malbec 2013
93  Tim Atkin 
Wine Advocate 93 "he spicier of the appellation Malbecs might be the 2013 Malbec Appellation Vista Flores, also a little riper with juicy cherries and hints of cassis intermixed with the flowery aromas and the elegant minerality found in all of the range. The palate is silky and juicy, very

Zuccardi Malbec 2014
90  Tim Atkin 
Tim Atkin 90"Great fruit; more black than red, with spicy aromas. Very fresh but round as well. The 2013 vintage provided elegant fruit, with great natural acidity. Great example of a Malbec from the Uco Valley." ~T.A.

Dom Faiveley Gevrey-Chambertin Clos des Issarts 1er Cru 2012
96  Tim Atkin 
Tim Atkin 96 "A monopole situated close to Mazis-Chambertin and Les Ruchottes, this 0.5-hectare vineyard is planted north-south (rare in these parts). Its fine, fresh and sweet, but with an undertow of tannin and considerable depth of flavour. With neighbors like those, its hardly surprising. Fresh

Altos 'Hormigas Reserva' Malbec 2014
93  Tim Atkin 
Wine Advocate 93 "There is quite a jump in price for the 2014 Malbec Reserve. Here the grapes are grown on chalky soils with round stones in Altamira, Gualtallary and a touch of Vista Flores (that they are not using anymore) that fermented with indigenous yeasts and without any acid correction. The

Lismore Estate Vineyards Syrah 2016
95  Tim Atkin 
Tim Atkin 95 "The 2015 has sold out so quickly that Sam O’Keefe is already on to the 2016, which is every bit as good and less funky. Bloody, rich and stony, this is focused, concentrated and well balanced, showing a lick of new oak, dark, brooding fruit flavours and a twist of white pepper." 

Burgo Viejo Crianza 2016
92  James Suckling 
James Suckling 92 “A tight red with a dense palate of dark berries and chocolate. Full and reserved, yet polished and energetic.”  Tim Atkin 91 "Well priced and very appealing, this is part of a line up of really enjoyable, harmoniously oaked wines from Burgo Viejo, made from Tempranillo and 5%
