Product description

Bright, medium ruby. Vibrant, strong aromas of blackberry, violet, dark raspberry and crushed stone. Very well built fine tannins, with superconcentrated body plus a smooth noticeable graphite power. Utterly silky finish with a perfumed back end.

95 Points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate    Located in Perdriel, in Luján de Cuyo, a classical zone in the province or Mendoza, the 2013 Malbec Finca Bella Vista had the same treatment as the rest of the single-vineyards, which means aging in 100% new French oak barriques. In addition, in 2013 they started using no less than 50% 160-liter barrels for the élevage, and against all odds the oak is really imperceptible here. There are wild berries, acidic strawberries, violets and some balsamic aromas that characterize the incredibly elegant and subtle nose. The palate reveals a silky texture and superb acidity with juicy fruit, sophisticated tannins, great balance and length.

95 Points - James Suckling    This is a precise and sassy wine with blueberry and hints of hazelnut plus lots of citrus character. Full and tight with a long and persistent finish. Better in 2016 but so good now.

93 Points - Wilfred Wong of Wine    Showing power and complexity, the voluminous 2013 Achaval Ferrer Finca Bella Vista Malbec starts out with fascination in the aromas—notes of wild strawberries and blueberries, anise and licorice, as well as earth and an accent of leather. The wine's power suggests a pairing with grilled beef. Drinks pretty well now.

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast    Bright, jammy red-berry aromas are gritty and a bit herbal. A fleshy, jammy mouthfeel belies the snappy raspberry and blueberry flavors that follow. A lot of blue-fruit character and herbal notes grace a high-energy, bright finish. Drink through 2023.

91 Points - Wine Spectator    Big and rich, with ample and well-sculpted flavors of dark plum, currant and Asian spice, featuring plenty of chocolate mousse notes. Dense and savory on the finish. Drink now through 2019.
