    Winemaker's Notes:

    With Finca Mirador our goal is to allow the vineyard to express its "terroir". Malbec is the flagship red variety from Argentina. It has found in Mendoza its true home. We work as hard as necessary during eleven months in the vineyard, to produce grapes that will need very little intervention during the winemaking process. The climate, the viticulturural program, the irrigation management: Everything is thought as a step towards the goal of true expression of the vineyard. Finca Mirador's personality shines through the wine, vintage after vintage, with a recognizable and repeated signature. Fermentation took place in a small tank. At dryness, the wine was pressed and racked into French oak barrels, 100% new, where it was then aged for 15 months.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Intriguing, with a piercing violet and mineral entry backed by superracy acidity that lets the crushed blueberry, plum and blackberry fruit stretch out on the very long, mouthwatering finish. Best from 2010 through 2015. 1,000 cases made.

    The 2007 Finca Mirador was sourced from a 13-acre parcel in Medrano planted in 1921. The yields for this wine were 0.9 tons per acre with the wine aged for 15 months in new French oak. Purple-colored with a superb display of toasty new oak, lilacs, spice box, black cherry, and black raspberry, on the palate it sports an elegant personality, savory flavors, underlying structure, and a lengthy, 45-second finish. It, too, will drink well from 2013 to 2022.

    I liked it best right out of the gate on its own, but it did pair better with food as it opened over the course of the night.

    Excellent malbec. used in wine tasting & well received by large number of tasters, preferred that is. Unfortunately cannot buy the 2007 vintage anymore. It was much less expensive and you got a tremendous value for your dollar,

    Definitely smooth and supple with a tinge of spice. It is really mellow and goes down smooth.
