Buy Achaval Ferrer Malbec 2012
Wine Advocate 90 points - The 2012 Malbec (first vintage was 2003) is a blend of three vineyards from Medrano, one from Lujan, one from Gualtallary (the highest altitude) and one from La Consulta in the Uco Valley. There is a short fermentation (7 days) but it resulted in a very dark-colored, ripe wine with aromas of blackberries, a touch of red fruit, and hints of smoke and spices. It is quite intense. The old vines are always different in the nose and the palate and this feels like an old-vine Malbec, medium-bodied palate, supple, mineral, rounder, velvety, grapy and silkier. Tannin and alcohol are well-integrated and in the background. Drink now-2018.
