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.
A superb display of tasty new oak, lilac, spice, and black cherry, Finca Mirador has personality and structure.
The 2008 Finca Mirador offers up a kinky nose of wild berries, brier, underbrush, and exotic spices. Already complex with superb depth and intense flavors, this is an exceptionally lengthy offering that will benefit from 3-4 years of additional bottle aging and should be at its best from 2013 to 2023.
Superrich and still quite tight, displaying a strong charcoal and graphite spine that holds the core of dense plum skin, anise, blackberry and Black Forest cake at bay. The long, grippy finish lets Turkish coffee and licorice notes flesh out. Best from 2011 through 2015.
Saturated medium ruby. Deeper in pitch than the Altamira, with blackberry, cassis, black cherry and mint aromas complemented by strong smoky, meaty soil tones. Ripe and large-scaled but extremely closed today, not yet showing the inner-mouth perfume of the Altamira Strong acidity and big, broad tannins saturate the palate of this very firmly structured, ageworthy malbec.91(+?) points.
