Wine Advocate 95 points - The 2011 Malbec Finca Altamira is a subzone from La Consulta in the Uco Valley, which is located at 1,050 meters above sea level on the east bank of the Tunuyan River. The soils have big boulders and volcanic ashes, and there is an important component of calcium carbonate. This is the first old vineyard they found, and it produces a very dark-colored, bright, wine with a subtle nose, mixing flowers (violets) and red, blue and black fruit, with hints of spices and a velvety feeling. The palate is medium-bodied, silky, with an impressive acid spine and completely ripe and round tannins. The velvety feeling is also confirmed in the texture, which displays a long tactile sensation mixing electricity, minerality and very good acidity. A superb wine! Drink 2014-2025.  (Apr 2014)

Wine Spectator 96 points - Dark and racy, featuring blackberry coulis, black plum skin and cassis notes balanced with fresh acidity and fine tannins. Embedded layers of espresso, flint and floral mark the long, expressive finish. Best from 2014 through 2022. From Argentina.—N.W. (Aug 28 2013)
