70 years old vines. Black cassis, blackberry and black cherry explosions. Very polished. The oak is very nicely integrated. Graphite and minerals made it a lot interesting. Extremely well made Malbec.

The most powerful and forward of the three single-Finca wines from Achaval Ferrer, this is also from the (relatively) lowest altitude Vineyard site. Black fruit, silky texture, pronounced well -integrated tannins. Even young this wine has a rustic charm to it

Highly polished Malbec, dark cherry, dry, well balanced. Great drinking today, should be good for a decade.

Lots of personality and structure with a superb display of lilac, spice and black cherry.

Smells compicated. Incredibly dark looking. Tastes of oak, cinnamon, and sage initially followed by... pears? Berries? Super smooth!

Intense deep red fruit and slight spice. Slightly overbearing. Maybe I'm not sophisticated enough but this seems to be for marketing than substance.
