    Winemaker's Notes:

    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:

    This has a stunning nose, with a high-toned violet note running through waves of warm blueberry, fig, boysenberry and raspberry compote. The intense palate is superracy, with superb underlying minerality driving the fruit through the long, seamless finish. Flaunts power without ever getting bombastic. Malbec. Drink now through 2018. 818 cases made.

    Wine Spectator

    The purple-colored 2006 Finca Mirador is sourced from a vineyard planted in the 1940s with yields under one ton per acre. It offers slightly more complexity revealing a splendid perfume of toasty oak, mineral, mocha, violets, black cherry, and blueberry. Round, layered, succulent, and rich, its pure, fruit-filled finish lasts for 45+ seconds.

    The Wine Advocate

    The most approachable of the Achaval-Ferrer single-vineyard wines comes from soils rich in clay and sand. It's a malbec with deep flavors, intoxicating black cherries and violets, all framed in tense acidity. A seductively juicy and fresh match for cassoulet, this will also mature well over the next five years.
