K&L Notes

Achával Ferrer's Mendoza Malbec is always the most forward, immediately pleasurable, and affordable of this leading winery's lineup. For those of you who love Malbec's mixture of plum and berry fruit, this is the perfect Malbec for you. Year after year, it is a wine that is lively on the palate, and brighter tasting than many of its similarly priced competitors. The consistent quality is no surprise, given the careful sourcing of fruit from long-term contracted, mature vineyards in Lujan de Cuyo, San Carlos (Uco Valley) and Medrano. Aged in French oak for a brief 9 months, this elegant mid-weight, with plum and huckleberry fruit flavors and lovely acid balance, shows that Malbec does not need to be over-oaked or over-extracted, and indeed is all the better for delivering the simple, fruitier, more food friendly side of its personality.

    I have long been a fan of this vineyard and this newly released 2015 keeps that opinion running. A big, lush nose of dark red fruits and spice lead to a palate of blackberries, baking spices and balanced tannin. Super solid!

    Achaval Ferrer still remains my benchmark Malbec producer. This wine is pure Argentina with its luscious black raspberry fruit, chocolatey palate, savory spices and supple mouthfeel. There is nothing that screams eat me with some slow roasted short ribs, flank steak or ribeye like this wine here. Pure pleasure in a glass.
