Wine Enthusiast 91 points - A minerally, crusty bouquet includes hard-driving berry and cassis aromas. A mouthfilling set of tannins and powerful fruit is focused on berry, toast, pepper and a stewed note. Finishing flavors of cocoa and espresso fold in a leathery note along with a lasting beam of bright acidity.  (Oct 2014)

Wine Spectator 89 points - Very juicy and spicy, with powerfully concentrated flavors of red currant, hoisin sauce and dark chocolate, chiseled with plenty of fresh acidity. Roasted mushroom accents show on the tannic finish. Drink now through 2019. 1,500 cases made.-KM  (Jun 15 2014)

Wine Advocate 91 points - The 2010 Kinien Malbec from Vista Flores in the Uco Valley is dark cherry-colored, with a reticent, backward nose of blackberries and damsons intermixed with aromas of cinnamon, vanilla, pepper and cloves. The medium to full-bodied palate displays an array of flavors of ripe fruits and flowers with a dry finish. Give it a little more time and it should come into better balance in bottle Drink 2015-2020. (Apr 2014)

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.
