Achaval Ferrer Mendoza Malbelc Finca Mirador 2006
This wine kicked off a girls' weekend, and it was perfect with an aged manchego & some balsamic fig preserves. Very young so it needs to breathe a while, but it packs a wallop! If you like a an in-your-face red, look no further.Add winemaker's notes

This dark, extracted wine possesses a smoky, peppery bouquet redolent of blackberry compote and bacon fat. That bacon fat note leads off the palate, but quickly gives way to ripe and rich black cherry flavors, with some mocha spice, oak and cardamom peeking in near the finish. Long, lush, rich and concentrated, the aftertaste dances with toast and a faint streak of mineral. New York strip, medium-rare please! (91 points)
Very interesting wine. Light to medium bodied. Smokey, almost oak like taste with a hint of silky chocolate. Very smooth and balanced. Flavors will certainly surprise you and bewilder you. The length is pleasant and adequate. One of the best red's I've had in my short wine career (I'm 21).

Stunning nose, with a high-toned violet note running through waves of warm blueberry, fig, boysenberry and raspberry compote. Intense palate is superracy, with superb underlying minerality driving the fruit through a long, seamless finish. Flaunts po... Wine Spectator.
