2006 Achával Ferrer Malbec Mendoza

SKU #1031557

92 points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Compared to the 2005, (Dark ruby/purple in color, it offers up an enticing perfume of toasty oak, milk chocolate, coconut, black cherry, and blackberry, leading to a medium-bodied wine with ample ripe black fruits, excellent balance, and nicely concealed soft tannins. The wine will evolve for several years but can be enjoyed now.) the 2006 Malbec has a more expressive nose and is more structured. It would profit from 4-6 years of additional cellaring and will drink well through 2020. (Dec. 2007) 91 points from Wine Spectator: "Ripe and forward, with blackberry and boysenberry fruit augmented by notes of violet, mineral and sweet toast. The long, rounded finish shows a minerally tang." (Oct. 15, 2007) Founded only in 1998, From 100% malbec grown in Vistalba, at 980 meters above sea level. Intense, pure, full of black fruit flavors and young aromas, this Malbec emphasizes the soul of Malbec, the undisputed king of Argentine reds. The wine was aged during 10 months in oak barrels, 95% French and 5% American. Nevertheless, special care is taken to preserve the necessary balance between wood and fruit without losing its spontaneity. Non clarified and unfiltered.
