Food Pairings for Achaval Ferrer Malbec Mendoza
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)

External Reviews for Achaval Ferrer Malbec Mendoza
The 2005 Malbec of which there are 6500 cases, is a fine introduction to the style of Achaval-Ferrer. Sourced from three vineyards with vines ranging from 12 to 85 years of age with yields averaging a modest 2.4 tons per acre, the wine was aged for 9 months in seasoned French oak and 4 months in tank before being bottled unfined and unfiltered. 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.
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.
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 solidly built, with dark plum and raspberry fruit layered with violet, mineral and licorice flavors. The fresh acidity keeps it all together. Drink now through 2008.
This lovely red displays aromas of violet and crushed raspberry, following through to a medium-bodied palate, which lingers with a pleasant aftertaste of licorice and mint. Drink now.
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.
The 2008 Malbec spent 9 months in French oak before bottling without fining or filtration. It is a glass-coating opaque purple with a bouquet of toast, violets, spice box, black cherry, and plum. Smooth-textured and sweetly fruited, it has excellent depth, savory flavors, and a lengthy finish. In our current economy, this is an ideal steak house wine.
Rich with luscious raspberry and macerated currant, Mendoza Malbec has dark, juicy finish. This wine is vivid and racy in character.
