Editorial Reviews for Achaval-Ferrer Torrontés Nomade
Vivid violet color and almost opaque in the glass. This opens with intensely floral and tropical fruited notes and a touch of raw, black pepper studded bacon. A touch syrah like then a rush of freshly crushed wild raspberry greets the nose with an underlay of vanilla crème that is barely noticeable. In the mouth this is bright and vivid with blazing purity of fruit. Perhaps this lacks a touch of complexity but the wine feels very fine and energetic in the mouth with juicy acids and superbly polished tannins driving the wonderful berried fruit with a nuance of juniper spice. Finishes long and mouth cleansing with excellent clarity. 92pts
Started with a nice hint of pears, juiciness and a slight touch of acetone (similar to overripe Asian pears). Secondary notes of butter, vanilla and even lychee. The more I drank, I started noticing a nice smokiness and a hint of tobacco toe the flavors. It was a real pleasure being able to enjoy this Malbec.

Gorgeous aromas of crushed plum and fig lead the way for this very dense but remarkably supple offering, loaded with additional blackberry and boysenberry fruit, all laid over Turkish coffee, violet, pastis, licorice and charred mesquite notes.
Super-perfumed with aromas of black raspberry, black cherry, floral notes, and mineral that is already revealing complexity. The wine is impeccably balanced, has an elegant personality despite its size, layers of flavor, and a very lengthy finish.
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
