Wine Advocate 92 points With a profile closer to the wines from the 1990s, the 2013 Nosotros Single Vineyard Nómade Malbec is concentrated and powerful and needs time in bottle. Even if they lowered the oak, it's still very oaky, with abundant smoke and spice aromas and a little more in the palate, where there were abundant, grainy, slightly astringent tannin and oak-related flavors. In 2013, it's produced with the grapes from the same vineyard as the Expresivo in Gualtallary. But this is a Gualtallary from a different era; the more recent wines feel a lot fresher and with the oak better integrated. For fans of oaky Malbec. 14,000 bottles were filled in October 2014.James Suckling 99 points The intense but more importantly, ethereally-fresh fruit takes your breath away. A kaleidoscope of freshly-picked blackcurrants, brambleberries, boysenberries and mulberries. Though this a late release, it tastes like they were picked yesterday. Then there's pure ink, iodine, licorice and dark plums. Full body, seamless tannins, unmitigated fruit and an incredibly long finish.
