"more feminine than most of your list, yeah?"
"wait?, what?, yeah...no". This wine is an absolute rockstar. 6 hours after being open without a cork, this is a wonderful wine with great structure, tension and fruit. An eye opener for sure, total surprise.

The 2010 Achaval-Ferrer Quimera is well within its prime drinking window, and offers a concentrated, seductive nose fairly bursting with damson plum, ripe blueberries, ash, mint, juniper, and spice. This is an exceptionally balanced wine, with graceful distribution of ripe, firm tannins drenched in juicy blueberries, white pepper, and black tea. Smooth and delicious, this luscious Malbec sports a medium plus finish and the structure to last several years in the cellar. 14.0% ABV | Sample

Now with for years song the wine is brilliant deep ruby and wonderfully balanced between cassis and black cherry fruit and some earthy chocolate notes. Serious wine that is fun to taste with friends

Corked, but the fruit persevered. I tried to wave people off but they kept drinking. So there's that -- drinkable even when corked.

Incredible mid palate. Great lift. Intricate red fruit and a touch of Bret. Really cool.
