Achaval Ferrer Malbec 2015 Mendoza, Argentina 

My Rating 87 Points.   

Price $20.

 

Dirty ruby in color with a purple/brick rim.

Strong nose of blackberries, currants, plums, cherries, chocolates, smoke, licorice, oak, vanilla, alcohol, cola, leather, earth, vegetables, pencil lead and peppercorn.

Medium bodied, smooth and elegant, with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, bell pepper, cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, earth, spices, peppercorn, leather, smoke, chocolates, green herbs and spices.

Nice finish with soft tannins and black pepper.

This is a young Malbec from Mendoza. Nicely balanced and drinking elegantly now, but will be better in a year or two. A nice wine to keep in your cellar for a while, and not expensive either.

Needs two hours to properly open up and show its complexity.

100% Malbec grapes, Unfiltered and Unfined. Another teeth staining red wine…

14.5% alcohol by volume.
