Achaval Ferrer "Finca Mirador" Malbec Maipu, Argentina 2018
94 Points Vinous
From Medrano, Junín, the 2018 Malbec Finca Mirador spent 15 months in new barrels. Dark purple in hue, the aromas offer ripe plum and blackberry jam with hints of balsam and bay leaf over secondary oaky notes. Potent in the mouth with alcoholic energy and mild freshness, the intense jammy flavors are accompanied by delicate tannins. This is a smooth wine of surprising delicacy given how concentrated it is.
