Winemaker Notes:
Dark medium ruby. Blackberry, black plum, violet, cassis and a touch of leather on the nose. Silky on the palate, fresh acidity and refined tannins. Marked layers of espresso with a long floral very expressive finish.

96 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
2014 started as a normal growing season, but in February it started raining, so the character of many wines is fresh, less powerful and more elegant. These characteristics are clearly reflected in the 2014 Malbec Finca Altamira, which in any case is always the most floral and exuberant of the single-vineyard bottlings. What matters here is the origin, the soils and vines, rather than the process, which is kept more or less the same for all of the wines. It has a spectacular acid structure, not as creamy as other years, more vertical. Truly outstanding.

96 Points - James Suckling
The dried-meat and ripe-fruit character is very intense on the nose with hints of berries, tobacco and wet leaf. Full-bodied, dense and rich with wonderful energized fruit. Layered. Long and zesty finish. Better in 2020.

95 Points - Wine & Spirits
At 2,296 feet of altitude, Mirador is the lowest of Achaval Ferrer's three Fincas, with vines planted between 1928 and 1942. In warmer years, this is often focused on creaminess more than tannic structure. But in 2014, intense rains refreshed the vines, making for a juicy wine. The typical Malbec notes of black fruit and exotic spice are there, accompanied by penetrating acidity that draws out redder notes of sweet cherry and raspberry. A surprising Mirador, this should be a great pour for slow-cooked pot roast.
