Bright mediumruby. Slightly porty aromas of blackberry, bitter chocolate and espresso. Less sweet and showy than the Altamira, displaying a distinctly savory character to its flavors of black fruits, leather and pepper. Herb and spice notes add lift. Finishes peppery and tight, with chewy tannins calling for at least four or five years of additional cellaring. A bundle of disparate components today but with excellent potential. 90+ Points
As for the single-vineyard wines, the 2011 Malbec Finca Mirador is from Medrano, at 720 meters altitude, on the west parcel, where the soils are deep and clay-rich. This is their warmest single-vineyard with very fine tannins, concentrated but balanced, with aromas and flavors of dark fruit, graphite and black spice. The palate is medium-bodied, ripe and round, no edges, sophisticated and precise. It is always the wine that shows well early. I had the 2002, which showed very balsamic with notes of dried herbs. 2002 was an easy vintage, a textbook harvest and the wine is subtle. It talks to you. It is perfect for drinking now. There will be no Finca Mirador in 2012 because hail destroyed the crop. Drink now-2021.
This pure, racy red exhibits a dark side, with layers of spice, graphite and maduro tobacco to the crushed raspberry, blackberry and concentrated cassis fruit. Needs time in the cellar. Best from 2015 through 2022. 1,122 cases made. NW Rated #73 in Wine Spectator’s 2013 Top 100
