Achaval Ferrer Finca Mirador Malbec 2015


“(14.8% alcohol; from heavier soils): Bright medium ruby. Pungent, medicinal aromas of blueberry, blackberry, espresso and mint complicated by mineral and leather nuances. Plush, rich and deep, communicating an almost chocolatey ripeness to its slightly medicinal flavors of dark berries and leather. The most massive of these single-vineyard wines and also the mostly obviously alcoholic in its slight warmth. Boasts excellent breadth and well-buffered tannins but can’t quite match the Altamira or Bella Vista for class or inner-mouth energy. This large-scaled, slightly wild wine has plenty of tannins for cellaring. Drinking window: 2020-2027. 91+ points”
