Listed in the Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 2008! 96 points and "Highly Recommended" by Wine Spectator: "Piercing aromas of violets, iron and blueberry fruit are followed by a massively rich, yet amazingly pure, precise palate of boysenberry and blackberry flavors. Riveting finish is loaded with minerality and dark, velvety fruit. Still young, with loads in reserve. Best from 2009 through 2018." (Web 08)

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "One of the most untouched, terroir-driven Malbecs made in Argentina is Achaval-Ferrer’s Altamira. It’s harvested about three weeks earlier than most high-end fruit, resulting in core raspberry flavors and a certain redness of character. The wine is unfined and cloudy but still very clear on the palate, with length, power and class. Best from 2009-2012." (08/08)
