90 Points - Antonio Galloni Vinous Media:
Bright straw. High-pitched, complex nose offers energetic orange, nectarine and floral scents. Lively citrus and pit fruit flavors are given depth by a melony quality and a hint of floral honey. Picks up a touch of ginger on a long, spicy finish of very good clarity. - Josh Raynolds (July 2013)

95 Points - Antonio Galloni:

"A beautifully, centered, polished wine the 2010 Barbaresco Vanotu impresses for its striking inner perfume and exceptional balance. In 2010, the Vanotu is impeccable and harmonious from the very first taste. Leather, licorice, mint and sweet spices resonate on the textured, inviting finish. The 2010 is unusually voluptuous for the year. Readers should give the 2010 another few years for the French oak to integrate. Giorgio Pelissero's wines have a way of coming together in bottle. I expect that will be the case here as well." - Antonio Galloni (October 2013)

95 Points - Antonioi Galloni:
"All of the very best attributes of the vintage and the Pelissero house style come through in the 2009 Long Now. A huge, rich wine, the Long Now bursts from the glass with dark fruit, mocha, grilled herbs and smoke. This voluptuous, striking wine is loaded with class through and through. Tar, licorice and smoke are layered into the deep, resonant finish." - Antonio Galloni (October 2012)

97 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2008 Finca Altamira is a bit broader and richer on the palate. It is an opulent wine that combines elegance with power. Give it 4-5 years of cellaring and drink it from 2014 to 2028. Achaval Ferrer is now firmly established as one of Argentina’s benchmark producers." - Jay Miller (12/2010)

"The 2008 Finca Bella Vista has it all. Purple/black in color, it displays an exotic, sexy nose, dense layered fruit, and 5-7 years of aging potential. Satin-textured, mouth-coating, and very long in the finish, it will offer a drinking window extending from 2015 to 2028. Achaval Ferrer is now firmly established as one of Argentina’s benchmark producers." - Jay Miller (12/2010)

98 Points - James Suckling:
"Extraordinary aromas of blackberry and licorice with violets. Full body, with incredible depth of fruit and tension. Phenomenal mouthfeel. So much mineral and dried flowers too. Drink or hold." - (June 11th, 2014)

95 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2011 Malbec Finca Bella Vista is from Perdriel (where they have the winery) at 985 meters above sea level, on the south bank of the Mendoza River. The soils are deep, with abundant gravel. This seems much more subtle and elegant than the Mirador, with finesse and ample fine tannins, the medium-bodied palate is precise, a little incisive, with good acidity. This is concentrated and smooth, powerful and elegant. Drink 2014-2024." - Luis Gutierrez (Apr 2014)

96 Points - Wine Spectator - Rank #73 TOP 100 WINES OF 2013:
"This pure, racy red exhibits a dark side, with layers of spice, graphite and maduro tobacco to the crushed raspberry, blackberry and concentrated cassis fruit. Needs time in the cellar. Best from 2015 through 2022. 1,122 cases made." – NW (Nov 15, 2013)

91 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2012 Malbec (first vintage was 2003) is a blend of three vineyards from Medrano, one from Lujan, one from Gualtallary (the highest altitude) and one from La Consulta in the Uco Valley. There is a short fermentation (7 days) but it resulted in a very dark-colored, ripe wine with aromas of blackberries, a touch of red fruit, and hints of smoke and spices. It is quite intense. The old vines are always different in the nose and the palate and this feels like an old-vine Malbec, medium-bodied palate, supple, mineral, rounder, velvety, grapy and silkier. Tannin and alcohol are well-integrated and in the background. Drink now-2018." - Luis Gutierrez (Apr 2014)

92 Points - The Rhone Report:
"Made from a blend of 85% Grenache and 15% Syrah, from 80+ year vines, that is aged for 6 months in concrete tank, the 2011 Michel Gassier Cercius is a lush, decadent offering that delivers loads of black raspberry and blackberry styled fruit that is intermixed with notions of licorice, rolled stone, roasted garrigue, and hints of leather on the nose. Layered, fresh, and beautifully textured, with a full-bodied, rich feel in the mouth that never seems heavy, this absolutely knockout Côtes du Rhône is a candidate for a multi-case purchase, and will deliver the goods for 4-6 years. Do not let the price tag fool you, this is a gorgeous wine that will stand up to any number of more prestigious and expensive bottlings." - Jeb Dunnuck (Sep 2012)

91 Points - Vinous Media:
"Savory herbs, tar, licorice, ash, dark raspberries and wild flowers all emerge from Seavey's 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Caravina. The 2011 is just a touch compact, but it nevertheless has plenty of energy. An intense, powerful wine, the 2011 needs another few years in bottle for the tannins to soften. There is no shortage of personality here. The Coravina is made from the estate's young vines. In 2011 the blend is 92% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Merlot." - Antonio Galloni (November 2013)
