Had it on an Argentinian flight. It smells of dark fruits berries. The tannins was a tad too much for me and I did not like the woodiness it had. The earthy mineral taste was there but it was not bad. It is not exactly an easy wine.

Classic malbec with a nose of burnt matches and ink, then bright flavors with a touch of the acrid aromas continuing in the mouth and into the finish. A great choice for malbec purists, and excellent with strong cheeses. (AV 87, http://argovino.com/?p=461)

A nice, dense and full bodied Malbec. Stands up well against others we've tasted in the price range. $18.95 VW

The 2010 Malbec was sourced from three vineyards, two of which are 66 and 86 years of age, with the wine aged for 9 months in French oak. It is a super-fragrant offering featuring racy red fruits, spice box, incense, and floral notes. Pure, sweetly-fruited, and elegant in the glass, this intense, lengthy Malbec can be approached now and over the next 6–8 years.

Winemakers Notes - The resulting character of the 2010 vintage - Very balanced. Soft tannins and ripe tannins, present in enough quantity for the wines to have structure and skeleton. Piercing and haunting aromas. More mineral character and terroir specificity than any recent vintage!

Ripe and concentrated, this simple, substantial malbec turns the volume up high on its oak and black fruit. It should mellow with two or three years in the bottle-or decant now for a grilled steak.

Medium red-ruby. Blueberry, blackberry, menthol and bitter chocolate on the nose. Juicy, intense and fine-grained, with a restrained sweetness and enticing peppery lift to the flavors of dark berries, violet, licorice and game. This reminded me in weight and flavor of a Saint-Joseph. Finishes with a fine dusting of tannins and good savory persistence.

Dark, racy and aromatic, as hints of spice box, cedar and underbrush highlight the pure blackberry, cassis and raspberry flavors. Well-balanced, as fine tannins and a long, complex finish show off the wines pedigree. Drink now through 2019. -NW Wine Spectator. A Malbec wine from Mendoza in Argentina. 2010 Achaval Ferrer Finca Mirador 750ml

Good ruby-red not quite as lucid as the Finca Altamira. Rather wild aromas of tobacco pepper herbs roast coffee and game. Supple and surprisingly open-knit with a bit less energy to its concentrated dark fruit flavors than the Finca Altamira bottling is showing today. The least tightly coiled of the three top wines from Achaval Ferrer and likely to be the earliest drinker. 91+ Stephen Tanzers IWC.
