"Deep violet color with purple reflections. The nose offers concentrated aromas of ripe red and dark fruits with delicate floral notes. The mouthfeel is rich and concentrated, The finish presents well integrated-tannins with bright acidity and a flinty minerality that gives the wine exceptional length." —winemaker
"Good dark red-ruby. Sappy, smoky nose combines redcurrant, flinty minerals, musky underbrush and spices. Less sweet than the Appellation La Consulta bottling but broader, showing less red than black fruit character along with a complicating hint of mushroom. This wine started off a bit underwhelming but exploded with aeration, showing building sweetness and finishing with suave, ripe tannins and excellent length. Winemaker Vigil describes this wine as in a Chinon style but this is denser and sweeter than that." —Stephen Tanzer, Vinous

"The 2014 Appellation Paraje Altamira Malbec is sourced from a single vineyard in the new official Paraje Altamira appellation, where the soils are rich in limestone. The grapes from this vineyard planted in 1997 with a massale selection from the old vineyard used for the Lunlunta fermented in equal parts in stainless steel and open top 225-liter oak barrels where the wine is kept for around one year before it's blended, not necessarily in a 50/50 proportion. This is surprisingly fresh for a vintage like 2014 and with the telltale chalky tannins that are making the wines from Altamira famous. 9,000 bottles produced." —Luis Gutiérrez, The Wine Advocate
