Pepper, bulky, masculine, powerful terpentine smell, woodsy and very tannic..alot of oomph
Terrific from first sip, sublime after a decant. Deep currant, cranberry, juicy. Clever blending of grape varietals that culminates in an extremely balanced and well structured product with elegant finish. My prediction? This wine will age well. But who will let it? Too yummy. If only it were a tad cheaper...sigh...
serve with prime rib
I liked it, but it didn't stand out. My husband loved it. Maybe I'll like it better in a few years.
saturated purple throughout. Nose of caramel and currants. Fat, alcoholic and slippery on the palate. no structure whatsoever. awful.
External Reviews for Achaval Ferrer Quimera Mendoza
A Bordeaux-style blend with an Argentinian twist - there\'s more Malbec than anything else.
Expressive flavors of black cherry, raspberry, violets, and cedar, Quimera is complex, layered and rich. It is recommended that wine decant at least an hour before drinking. This wine can be cellared for 10-20 years.
The 2008 Quimera is a blend of 40% Malbec, 22% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, with the balance Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot (a blend of all the traditional Bordeaux grapes except Carmenere). A glass-coating opaque purple, it delivers a superb nos... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Proprietary Blend wine from Mendoza in Argentina. 2008 Achaval Ferrer Quimera 750ml

2007 Achaval Ferrer "Quimera" Malbec/Cab/Merlot Mendoza Produced from 70 year old vines in the Medrano district of Mendoza, vines which yield a tiny 1 lb of fruit per plant, the newest release of Quimera is, as always, a well structured, beautiful example of restraint in this Bordeaux styled blend of Malbec, Cab and Merlot. Deep currant fruit as well as some red fruit aromas lead to a tightly structured palate, that is primary (i.e. the fruit is prominent) as well as tense and framed by not only the youthful tannins, but good acidity as well. This is serious wine for the cellar - either decant for a few hours and enjoy with a steak, or check back in a few years.
