Wine Advocate

The pricey 2015 Corte A is pretty impressive. A blend of 70% Malbec, 14% Bonarda (both planted in 1948) and 16% Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine aged for 18 months in French oak barrels, 60% of them new. It's a modern, ripe, clean and generously oaked wine, with good balance and tasty flavors. It should age harmoniously in bottle.

Vinous

Dark red-ruby. Elegant nose combines redcurrant, graphite minerality and smoky oak. A suave, savory wine with an alluring touch of sweetness and a hint of ripe peach on the lush middle palate. Perhaps not quite as obviously structured as the Tomero Malbec Gran Reserva from the Uco Valley, but given added sex appeal by mocha and cocoa powder notes from the Taransaud oak component. The suave tannins arrive late, allowing this stylish wine to open out on the back end.

James Suckling

A complex red blend with subtle herbal notes alongside the discreet blackberry and blackcurrant notes on the nose. Full body. Elegant, velvety tannins carry the long, minerally finish. Drink or hold.
