Achaval Ferrer Finca Bella Vista 2015


“(14.5% alcohol; from a deep gravel bed near the Mendoza River): Bright, moderately saturated medium ruby. Aromas of cassis, redcurrant, spices, herbs and tobacco along with an element of chocolatey oak. Wonderfully fine-grained, lively and sweet; both darker and brighter in its flavor profile than the Finca Altamira but also more open-knit today, showing a strong element of spicy oak. Finishes smooth, broad and sweet, but is it as complex? A second bottle of equal breadth was a bit more sharply focused and floral, and finished with a serious tannic spine and sneaky building persistence. This Malbec needs time. Drinking window: 2020-2027. 92+ points”
