James Suckling (JS) : 91 Points (2018)
This has a very polished nose with attractive red plums and dark berries that lead to a palate with a plush, smoothly delivered core of wild raspberries. Drink or hold.

Tim Atkin (TA) : 90 Points (2018)
The Pulentas use fruit from both Los Árboles and Agrelo to make this super reliable Malbec, aged in older oak and stainless steel to emphasise its floral, bouncy, easy-drinking fruit flavours.

Robert Parker (RP) : 90 Points (2017)
The youthful and fruit-driven 2017 La Flor Malbec was produced with grapes from vineyards in two different zones of Mendoza, with only half of the wine matured in barrel for four to six months. La Flor is a line of young wines that aim for fruit and typicity, with a good quality-to-price rapport—wines that are easy to drink and have some complexity but are still easy to understand. This tries to show the best of Mendoza, with very floral, elegant notes and sweet tannins from Agrelo and more freshness and minerality from Los Árboles, which is higher in altitude. This is very complete and pleasant, balanced and gentle. 250,000 bottles produced.

In color, the wine is an attractive, intense red with dark tones. It expresses fruit notes of plum, cherry, and dark fruits, with several spices like thyme, oregano, and black pepper, given by some of the components of the blend, which make the wine delicate and complex. On the palate it is elegant but structured, with a persistent finish making it a wine hard to forget.

Vina Cobos Bramare Zingaretti Vineyard Malbec 2016
Purple red with violet flecks. Truly elegant aromas of wild red fruits, violets and sour cherries. The palate is extremely complex with caramel, cinnamon and spices combined with earthy notes, ink and touches of gunpowder. A sweet mouth feel and great minerality. The long finish is unctuous, concentrated, round and firm full of sweet tannins, chocolate and black plums.
