Achaval Ferrer Finca Altamira 2012
Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Malbec Finca Altamira shows very ripe aromas of plums, back cherries, darker fruit than the 2013 sibling, notes of decayed rose petals and something organic. The palate is juicy with good acidity, fine tannins and a subdued minerality. A ripe, fruit-driven version of Finca Altamira. 7,000 bottles produced.
Wine SpectatorA lush and vibrant red, offering rich balsamic notes to the roasted plum, dried meat and minerally flavors. Intensely spicy midpalate, with a vibrant finish that lingers with licorice and dark chocolate accents. Drink now through 2019. 619 cases made.
Wine EnthusiastCellar Selection. Black currant, cherry, plum and floral aromas form a nose with freshness as well as power. Lively, layered and fruity on the palate, this single-vineyard Malbec is lightly herbal and toasty, with wild berry flavors leading the charge. A tight, firm finish with raspberry and red-currant flavors ensures that this will stand the test of time. Best 2016-2022.
