"Flavors of red creamy fruit. Bright and bold, and opens even more with air. This wine has the acidity and structure to last a long time, but the wine is tasty now."
"93 pts ... The 2008 Yacochuya feels much fresher and less ripe than the 2007. It is produced from old, ungrafted Malbec grown at 2,035 meters altitude in Cafayate, in the province of Salta. The fruit is wild, and there are some lactic aromas intermixed with notes of red and black berries, and an earthy, truffle-like aroma, a whiff volatile perhaps. The palate is full-bodied, with volume and density, a powerful wine that does not really show its real size, which means it is quite balanced. An impressive ripe, big, wild Malbec. Drink 2015-2020."

$13.99Don't tell anyone but we bought this without tasting it first solely on the quality of Ernesto Catena's other (Tikal) wines and, now tell everyone this, we are very pleased. Terrific blueberry and cherry flavors are surprisingly deep and nuanced, the tannins give structure and interest, and the wine pairs really well with Korea beef, salami, other charcuterie, and hard cheese.
