    Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate: "The nose of the 2014 Malbec is remarkably similar to the 2013 showing high-pitched aromas of wild berries and flowers. Its in the palate where you find a little more savoriness, perhaps more spicy flavors.  It's a blend of grapes from different location across Mendoza that represents very well what is the Achaval-Ferrer interpretation of Malbec. Drink; 2015 - 2018." Aug 2015

    Winery:  "Malbec Mendoza is an inevitable reflection of the variety that is emblematic to our country, the mountainous ranges of the Andes and the sun. Composed of various vineyards, located in the major geographic references that the Cuyana province offers, this young wine, potent and velvety wine, expresses pleasure, smooth and soft, combining land and flavors in one clear strong message.

    The textbook definition of Malbec. Bright ruby red in color, this wine is fresh and oral, featuring blackberry, raspberry and violets on the nose and palate. The wine is dense and thick with a noticeable minerality, silky tannins mark a lengthy finish. Low yields, careful vineyard management and low intervention winemaking are the hallmark of this and all other Achaval-Ferrer wines."
