Critic Notes

Bright crimson; an impeccably made wine without a single blemish in its complexion, the bouquet and palate deliver the same message: clearly varietal plum with fine tannins and quality oak. Mar 2015, www.winecompanion.com.au, Drink: 2016-2027

Score: 95-/100James HallidayDrinking Window: 2016-2027

The 2013 Cloudburst Malbec is deep garnet-purple in color, with a heady blackcurrant and plum perfume plus meaty / earthy notes and a savory chocolate suggestion. Medium-bodied with good concentration, it has a chewy tannin backbone and long finish with a touch of balsamic coming through. Mar 2016, www.robertparker.com
