James Suckling | 92 Points "Dark-berry, black-chocolate and tar aromas follow through to a medium to full body with juicy fruit, as well as asphalt and burnt-orange undertones. Drink or hold. Tasted April 2021"

Natalie Maclean | 90 Points "La Mascota 2020 Malbec is produced from sustainably-grown grapes and is a great value Argentinian Malbec. Love the texture and layers of juicy, ripe plum, blackberry, black cherry, dark chocolate, roasted herbs, smoky vanilla and toasty oak spice flavours on this fresh, smooth and medium-plus-bodied Malbec. Finishes with a mouthful of dark berry fruit and on a citrus note. Drink or hold. Malbec food pairings: pepper-crusted steak, wild mushrooms, steak fajitas, meat fondue, bittersweet chocolate. Tasted November 2021"

The Mascota vineyards lie at the foot of the Andes Mountains, barely a thousand meters away from the Mendoza River. The vines receive fresh breezes descending from the mountains and blowing along the river, all of which contribute to the generation of wide temperature ranges. The soil is predominantly alluvial, with a clay-loam surface, and rock is found at a depth of 60 cm. And so it is that Finca La Mascota finds itself set in perfect surroundings, and one the most renowned and prestigious wine-growing regions in Mendoza. The vineyards cover 100 hectares of land, 97 of which are implanted with grapes. The oldest wine is a Cabernet Sauvignon lot which was planted 41 years ago. The average age of the vineyards is 30 years, ranging from the 5-year-old new blocks to the oldest ones planted in the 70s.
