93 points "The flagship 2006 Lindaflor Malbec is 100% varietal aged for 18 months in new French oak. It offers up an ethereal aromatic array of wood smoke, pencil lead, lavender, spice box, black cherry, and black raspberry that is already remarkably complex. On the palate it is dense, rich, and opulent with layers of savory black fruits, exotic spices, and enough structure to evolve for at least 5-7 years. Cellar it for a minimum of five years and enjoy it through 2030. Bodega Monteviejo, owned by Catherine Pere-Verge (also the proprietor of Chateau Le Gay in Pomerol), is located at the foothills of the Andes, next to Vista Flores, south of Mendoza. Michel Rolland is in charge of the winemaking." Best 2012-2020

93 points "Deep, bright ruby. Sexy aromas of currant, coffee, bitter chocolate, minerals and graphite. Lusher and sweeter than the Monteviejo, with a finer-grained texture and insidious penetrating flavor intensity without undue weight. This very suave and rich wine saturates the palate with blackberry and raspberry fruit. Finishes with superb lift-and tannins that coat the front teeth. A beauty. (Jan/Feb 09) 92 points Wine Spectator: Dense, but with admirable purity, this lets a beam of crushed plum and boysenberry fruit pump through, while notes of fruitcake."
