96+pts Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate
Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate: "2014 started as a normal growing season, but in February it started raining, so the character of many wines is fresh, less powerful and more elegant. These characteristics are clearly reflected in the 2014 Malbec Finca Altamira, which in any case is always the most floral and exuberant of the single-vineyard bottlings. What matters here is the origin, the soils and vines, rather than the process, which is kept more or less the same for all of the wines. It has a spectacular acid structure, not as creamy as other years, more vertical. Truly outstanding. Drink 2016-2024." Dec 2016

James Suckling: "The dried-meat and ripe-fruit character is very intense on the nose with hints of berries, tobacco and wet leaf. Full-bodied, dense and rich with wonderful energized fruit. Layered. Long and zesty finish. Better in 2020." Jun 2017
 
Winery:  "For the pure aficionado. Dark medium ruby in color with aromas of blackberry, black plum, violet, cassis and a touch of leather. Silky on the palate with fresh acidity and refined tannins, which lead to layers of espresso and floral notes on a long, expressive finish. Low yields, careful vineyard management and low intervention winemaking are the hallmark of this and all other Achával-Ferrer wines."
