Outer quote mark Aromas of rubber, smoked meat, leather and black fruit create a dark-as-night bouquet. The palate on this blend of Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cab Franc is ripe and concentrated, with pure black cherry and roasted berry aromas.

Argentina has absolutely exploded as a wine region known for producing wonderful values, plus they are making world-class wines. The 2006 Achaval Ferrer "Quimera" is a stunning blend of Malbec, Cab, Merlot and Cab Franc that gives the wine a distinctive Bordeaux feel but never lets you forget it is more of a New World wine. The wine has excellent structure and body with rich tannins and dark fruit flavors that meld nicely with the rich oak accents. This wine has the stuffing to age easily for 10 years but can also be opened up tonight also and enjoyed with a big, juicy steak. If you're looking for a wine that is a little bit different than your everyday California Cabernet or Bordeaux, then try out this little gem from Argentina.
Drink from 2009 to 2019
