2009 Achaval Ferrer Malbec
A nice minerally spine drives this, with the core of damson plum, raspberry ganache and blackberry fruit staying sweet but racy and defined. Violet and graphite hints add length on the mouthwatering finish. Drink now. 12,000 cases made. –JM

The purple-colored 2009 Malbec is sensational for an entry-level wine. It gives up an alluring nose of wood smoke, Asian spices, floral notes, black cherry, and black raspberry. Layered, smooth-textured, and plush, this is a mouth-coating effort that is ready to drink but that will continue to deliver satisfaction for another 6-8 years.
