Achaval-Ferrer Malbec Finca Altamira 1999

Member Review by Hanabikiki:

I was lucky enough to taste this wine with its own winemaker, Roberto Cipresso, at his Wine Station (next to his wine circus) back in 2009. I can hardly describe how well balanced this wine was, showing strong hints of chocolate and coffee with a tiny wisp of leather, all laid down on a powerful and smooth ripe-red-fruits background. The length was unbelievable and hardly ceased to amaze me, the tannins gently stroking my mouth while the rest did its job. The best wine that I've tasted so far.
