PRODUCT OVERVIEW:

Achaval-Ferrer Winery is a collaborative effort between friends with roots in Italy and Argentina who share a passion for wine and mad, MAD love for Malbec. With each of their cuvées, regardless of price point, they have achieved their goal of maximizing the potential of Mendoza terroir and have crafted Malbec-based wines that seamlessly straddle the line between opulence and elegance.

Today's wine is a blend of 85% Malbec from Lujan de Cuyo, 10% Cabernet Franc from the Uco Valley, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon from Medrano. Vineyard sites were planted to varietals that flourished in their respective soils; the resulting wine, which was aged in a combination of stainless steel tanks and seasoned oak barrels is so much greater than the sum of its parts.

Full-bodied and lushly textured, the 2017 Achaval Ferrer "AF" Malbec Blend leads with ultra-ripe flavors of cassis, blackberries, and black plums on the nose and palate, with accents of crushed herbs, wet stone, and cacao adding depth and dimension. Pliant tannins and moderate acidity provide balance and structure. 

92 points, James Suckling:
"Notes of bright blackcurrants, elderberries, crushed violets, pepper, and coffee bean. Full body, lovely vibrant acidity, juicy tannins, plenty of tangy fruit, and a deliciously fruity finish." (4/5/18)
