Achaval-Ferrer Mendoza Malbec 2004
Malbec Mendoza is an inevitable reflection of the variety that is emblematic to our country, the mountainous ranges of the Andes and the sun. Composed of various vineyards, located in the major geographic references that the Cuyana province offers. This wine explains Malbec as well as Mendoza in one universal language.
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
Dark and tight, with a tremendous core of blackberry and boysenberry fruit, covered for now under dark chocolate, graphite and floral notes. Long, vivid finish has layers of fruit and a great minerally spine. Should be sleek and beautiful when it opens up fully.
Most distinguished and celebrated from Argentina’s Mendoza, Malbec has seen runaway success since the early 2000s. Mendoza’s agreeable, continental climate with hot, dry summers and cold snowy winters allows the perfect conditions for growing outstanding Malbec. This grape is easy to like for its lusty, deep flavors and aromas of blackberry, plum, red cherry, autumn spice and tilled earth. It’s easy to find delicious, fruit-driven, affordable everyday examples and in prices beyond, quite exceptional ones with dense, supple textures that make them capable of aging.
