Wine Enthusiast 92 points - This big, lush, friendly and serious Malbec is packed with prune, blackberry and toast aromas. On the palate, it’s deep and layered, the perfect bed for flavors of blackberry, chocolate and herb to fill. Huge for sure, but still complex, with dynamite prune and licorice notes on the finish. Drink now-2015.

Wine Spectator 90 points - A big, juicy red, exhibiting blackberry reduction, cassis and damson plum skin notes backed by medium tannins and a long finish of mesquite, licorice and spice box. Drink now. 1,300 cases made.-NW

Wine Advocate 90 points - (aged for 14 months in all-new barriques, 90% French and 10% American): Bright, saturated medium ruby. Crushed blackberry aroma lifted by exotic oak spices; shows an almost porty ripeness on the nose. Then dense, lush and sweet but with harmonious acidity and a violet element lifting the black fruit and chocolatey oak flavors. Finishes firmly tannic and bright. Built to age but will this wine absorb enough of its oak to merit an outstanding rating? -- Stephen Tanzer 89+ Points
The 2009 Kinien Malbec from Vista Flores is cropped at 3,000kg per acre and aged in new French and American oak. It has a voluptuous, exotic nose of kirsch, strawberry jam and marmalade that is well-defined. The palate is full-bodied and hedonistic, but the ambitious dark cherry and cassis fruit is kept in check by the crisp acidity and the finish is focused and nicely poised. This comes recommended for oenophiles with a penchant for a slice of hedonism. Drink now-2018.

Wine maker notes
From the Mapuche language meaning “unique,” Kinien is the icon line of wines from Ruca Malen produced from 100% Estate-grown fruit in limited quantities. Kinien Malbec is layered with aromas of ripe cherries and plums, violets, and smoke. Fresh and juicy on the palate, the sweet, concentrated tannins are balanced by a pleasant acidity. The long finish is marked by a velvety texture with hints of chocolate and a trace of cedar. A wine which will reward extensive cellaring, it is aged in new French oak barrels for 14 months and in bottle for 8.
