*Highly Recommended* This has a stunning nose, with a high-toned violet note running through waves of warm blueberry, fig, boysenberry and raspberry compote. The intense palate is superracy, with superb underlying minerality driving the fruit through the long, seamless finish. Flaunts power without ever getting bombastic. Malbec. Drink now through 2018.
Deep ruby. Blackberry, mocha, tobacco and a musky gamey note on the nose; smells sweeter today than the Finca Altamira. Then suppler, sweeter and wilder on the palate, with a more pliant, feminine texture than the comparatively brooding Altamira. But this very expressive wine also boasts excellent sappy acidity, and conveys an almost peppery impression of extract. Finishes chewy and very long. From a yield of 14 h/h.
The most approachable of the Achaval-Ferrer single-vineyard wines comes from soils rich in clay and sand. It's a malbec with deep flavors, intoxicating black cherries and violets, all framed in tense acidity. A seductively juicy and fresh match for cassoulet, this will also mature well over the next five years.
