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.

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.

Aromas and flavors of fresh crushed raspberry blackberry violet and graphite expand on the palate which remains fresh and focused as medium tannins add support to the finish. Malbec. Drink now through 2016. 300 cases imported. -NW Wine Spectator.

The 2009 Finca Mirador was sourced from vines planted in 1921 and yields of 0.9 tons per acre. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it sports a captivating nose of sandalwood, exotic spices, espresso, lavender, black cherry, and black raspberry. Layered on the palate with a velvety texture, it conceals enough structure to evolve for at least 3-4 years. This nicely proportioned effort will deliver prime drinking from 2015 to 2029. (from 70+-year-old malbec vines planted at 2,400 feet; 14 hectoliters per hectare): Good full ruby-red. Vinous aromas of dark berries, licorice, espresso and minerals lifted by violet and rose petal nuances; aeration brought captivating spicy perfume. Densely packed and youthfully imploded, and not quite as black in the mouth as the nose suggests. Penetrating, aromatic flavors of red berries and rose petal convey an almost pinot-like vibrancy. Offers a lovely light touch but has a firm spine for long aging. Aromas and fla...

Winemaker's Notes:

Finca Mirador is part of our research of "terroir" in Argentina. Malbec Finca Mirador is the result of the search for the best expression of that territory, one where the sum of climate, soil and grape variety are in a unique and consistent from year to year. The simple varietal expression is overwhelmed and subjugated by the force of "terroir" speaking from the depths of the roots.
