2009 Achaval Ferrer Quimera Mendoza
Producer: Achaval Ferrer
Style: Red Wine
Grape Type: Bordeaux Blend
90(+?) Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - March/April 2012
(a blend of 31% malbec, 27% cabernet sauvignon, 20% merlot, 18% cabernet franc and 4% petit verdot; 40% new French oak): Ruby-red. Aromas of black raspberry, crushed cherry, caraway seed, graphite and licorice. Juicy and tightly wound, with an almost tart quality to the blackberry and cranberry fruit. Very young and structured but bound-up today. Finishes with good floral lift and plenty of acidity. This will need time in the cellar to loosen up and gain in nuance.
