Ratings & Reviews

93 Points - James Suckling:
"A vivid and linear wine with blackberry and blueberry character. Granite. Medium body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. Drink now." - (April 5, 2018)

92 Points - Decanter:
"A lovely perfumed nose, though it needs time to open up. Smoky notes need to integrate. This is pure black fruit deliciousness. Patricio Tapia: A generous core of raspberry and blackberry fruit. A simple style that's refreshing and straightforward.Drinking Window 2018 - 2019" - Paz Levinson

90+ Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"I also tasted the just-bottled 2017 Felino Malbec, of which a whopping 651,000 bottles have been produced. They increased the percentage of French oak and reduced the use of American oak a bit, and the wood seems better integrated, neatly folded into the fruit. It felt a little closed (it was just bottled), and I sensed the difference between the cooler 2016 and the riper 2017, but the wine didn't show any excess and felt very balanced and harmonious. At the same time, they are also changing the image, with a cleaner, easier to read label that also reflects the character of the wine. It has very fine tannins and a great mouthfeel. Amazing quality for the volume. It slowly opened up in the glass and didn't stop to grow. In the long run, I think this will be even better than the 2016." - Luis Gutiérrez (29th Jun 2018)

Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Svelte and juicy, with red plum and raspberry flavors that are backed by fresh acidity. Notes of green olive and hints of tar show on the crisp finish. Drink now through 2021. 54,300 cases made, 18,000 cases imported." — KM (Nov 15, 2018)
