93pts James Suckling
James Suckling:  "Lots of black licorice to this Malbec as well as citrus, bark and some moss.  Tightly wound with firm tannins, driven acidity and a very minerally finish.  Drink now."  Jan 2019

Vinous:  "Bright ruby-red. Cassis, blackberry, licorice and bitter chocolate on the nose; riper and deeper than the Paulucci Malbec.  A step up in texture, plushness and depth, conveying an enticing saline character and a restrained sweetness to its flavors of dark raspberry, licorice, black cherry stomp and bitter chocolate.  Finishes firmly dry, with serious but suave tannins and lingering notes of cocoa powder and baking spices."  Jul 2018

Robert Parker, Jr's Wine Advocate:  "I also got to taste the 2017 Malbec Pizzella Vineyard and compare it with the previous vintage.  This is more transparent and riper than the 2016, with darker fruit and more abundant tannins, but it is still among the best of the 2017s.  There are some fine tannins and good balance.  360,000 bottles produced.  It was bottled in February 2018."  Jun 2018

Winery:  "Beautiful red/purple color with aromas of black cherries, dark fruits, dark chocolate and baker’s spice.  On the palate, the wine shows dense dark berry and plum flavors along with hints of sandalwood and spice, and even a hint of violets in the finish.  Don’t be concerned if you find yourself inhaling deeply from your glass, over and over—it is just your nose’s way of telling you that it wants its fair share!  This is a full-bodied and well-structured wine that is incredibly full of life and born to be enjoyed with food and friends. Goes great with many foods, especially meat, barbecue."
