Achával-Ferrer

Finca Bella Vista Perdriel Malbec 2011

Tried a few years ago, tasting great now. Founded in 1998, Achaval-Ferrer is a team of friends who make great wines. Was lucky enough to get a taste of this beauty again. Deep Ruby with aromas of fresh berry fruits with complex spice and floral notes. On the palate flavors of cherry and rich blackberry with tobacco and cacao. Sweet fine soft tannins, long finish, well balanced with acidity ending with mineral, spice and berry fruit character. Tasting Sample. — 7 days ago

Purple black color. Black (candied) cherries jump out of the glass almost overwhelming you.
Very smooth drinking with tannins and acidity to keep the excitement!
Decant at least an hour!

Agreed. IMHO, this wine has seen better days.

Bodega Septima

Mendoza Malbec 2018

There is a mineral thing there, like pencil lead along with a bright black fruit like blackberry. The palate is very joyful. A strong acid backbone, a nice blackberry fruit all along, blossoming all the way, a spherical mid palate with a little bit of a grain. Long fruity finish. Wow this is simple but so good! — 10 days ago

1885 is still too young for me, can you find an older source?

Jose Zuccardi

Valle de Uco Malbec 2013

A blend of 90% Malbec 10% Cab Sauv, oak aged, Ruby with aromas of pronounced berry fruits and floral spice nose. On the palate flavors of black cherry, currants and blackberry fruit with herb, cacao, cedar and pepper spice. Firm soft tannins, well balanced, good acidity, long finish ending with fruit, oak & spice. Nice! — 17 hours ago

Argentino Mendoza Malbec 2008

Purple black in colour. Blueberry, Chocolate and Cocoa. Big rich ripe and concentrated with plenty of extract. Black and blue fruits - plum and blueberry on the palate. Full bodied with medium plus intensity. Generous in flavour without being too heavy. Reminiscent of Cheval des Andes in that respect. Points off for an overly heavy bottle. — 12 days ago

Thanks Ericsson. I should drink more Argie Malbec. Have always loved their white grape, Torrontes.

Cobos Marchiori Malbec 2005

I’m a Malbec fan, and this was exceptional. The nose was of an ocean breeze though a field of blackberries. While black fruit was on the palate, it was more representative of sanguine and saline. Tannins completely integrated and smooth. Long lingering salty finish. Paul Hobbs, wow — 17 days ago
