On the other hand, three of the most prestigious wine critics from the UK andcollaborators for The World of Fine Wine* magazine: Tim Atkin MW, Gerard Basset and Anthony Rose, devoted a full article to Malbec from Argentina versus Malbec from Cahors.

They did a blind tasting of 40 Malbecs, 21 from Cahors and 9 from Argentina, among which our Trapiche Malbec Single Vineyard 2007 Viña Domingo F. Sarmiento, Viña Fausto Orellana de Escobar and Viña Adolfo Ahumada were rated with excellent scores.

The journalists agreed that Malbec is capable to offer a greater range of styles in
Argentina than in Cahors, mainly because of the differences in latitude and altitude.

Following please find scores:
Trapiche Malbec Single Vineyard 2007 Viña Sarmiento: 17.5
Trapiche Malbec Single Vineyard 2007 Viña Orellana: 16.5
Trapiche Malbec Single Vineyard 2007 Viña Ahumada: 15.5
