92 Points, "Smart Buy" - Wine Spectator
"Offers zesty flavors redolent of kirsch, raspberry ganache, red currant and crushed red plum, with concentrated minerality midpalate. The finish lingers with hints of white pepper and chocolate nibs. Drink now through 2024."

91 Points - Wine Advocate
"he 2014 Malbec Estate is a blend of grapes from the four zones and altitudes they work--at 1,800, 2,300 and 2,600 meters--and some 5% of grapes from the Altura Máxima vineyard at 3,111 meters. It fermented with indigenous yeasts, underwent malolactic in barrel and 18 months élevage in a combination of used and newer barrels. Winemaker Thibaut Delmotte thinks 2014 is, together with 2008, the most balanced harvest he has seen since he arrived there in 2005. These wines are always very dark colored, almost opaque, and this has a complex nose because it gets different characteristics from the grapes harvested at different altitudes--the lower ones provide body, and the higher ones add elegance, freshness and minerality. It's heady and aromatic mixing morello cherries with decayed violets, a touch of tar and smoke and some spices. The palate is soft, with very round tannins and juicy flavors, terribly engaging. It has a very tasty, umami-driven finish. Drink this at 15 degrees Celsius."

89 Points - Wine Enthusiuast
"Concentrated savory aromas of prune, blackberry, compost and tree bark are not uncommon for Colomé. This is a clampy tannic Malbec that pulls down hard on the palate. Salty savory plum and berry flavors are oaky and finish with tannic residue. Drink through 2022."
