    A pure, honest vision of Los Chacayes, this wine offers much more than the grapes it's made from (85% cabernet franc and 15% malbec, for statistical purposes only), conveying a sense of that rocky, arid place in the middle of the Uco Valley. This mountain hermit was vinified with 30% whole-cluster grapes to make it a bit fruitier and friendlier, although the truth is that that didn't actually happen. It's severe, austere, and inward looking, revealing little more than a framework of steely tannins coupled with equally severe acidity. It's a wine you shouldn't open for at least 5 years?and a tremendous example of sense of place. Score - 96. (Patricio Tapia, guiadescorchados.cl, 2019)
