The 2007 Finca Mirador was sourced from a 13-acre parcel in Medrano planted in 1921. The yields for this wine were 0.9 tons per acre with the wine aged for 15 months in new French oak. Purple-colored with a superb display of toasty new oak, lilacs, spice box, black cherry, and black raspberry, on the palate it sports an elegant personality, savory flavors, underlying structure, and a lengthy, 45-second finish. It, too, will drink well from 2013 to 2022. Intriguing, with a piercing violet and mineral entry backed by superracy acidity that lets the crushed blueberry, plum and blackberry fruit stretch out on the very long, mouthwatering finish. Best from 2010 through 2015. 1,000 cases made. -JM (all old-vines malbec) Good full ruby. Deeper and wilder on the nose than the Altamira, offering soil-driven notes of blackberry, licorice and violet. Dense and sweet but light on its feet, with a strong floral character and bright acidity cutting through the wine's density of texture. Finishes with a tannic spine that calls for patience.

A barrel sample of the 2007 Finca Mirador reveals a wine with darker fruit, outstanding concentration, impeccable balance, and a sense of elegance. It will effortlessly evolve for 4-6 years and be at its best from 2013-2030. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Malbec wine from Mendoza in Argentina. 2007 Achaval Ferrer Finca Mirador 750ml

Winemaker's Notes:

All of our wines are bottles without fining or filtering. There is additional risk in this, but we prefer not to strip the wine of subtle flavors and aromas. The formation of deposits in the bottle will be noticeable after some cellaring time. Decant 1 hour before drinking. With Finca Mirador our goal is to allow the vineyard to express its “terroir”. Malbec is the flagship red variety from Argentina. It has found in Mendoza its true home. We work as hard as necessary during eleven months in the vineyard, to produce grapes that will need very little intervention during the winemaking process. The climate, the viticulturural program, the irrigation management: Everything is thought as a step towards the goal of true expression of the vineyard. Finca Mirador´s personality shines through the wine, vintage after vintage, with a recognizable and repeated signature. Fermentation took place in a small tank. At dryness, the wine was pressed and racked into French oak barrels, 100% new, where it was then aged for 14 months.
