Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Spectator | Rating: 95

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.

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.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

($112) Deep ruby. Blackberry, mocha, tobacco and a musky gamey note on the nose; smells sweeter today than the Finca Altamira. Then suppler, sweeter and wilder on the palate, with a more pliant, feminine texture than the comparatively brooding Altamira. But this very expressive wine also boasts excellent sappy acidity, and conveys an almost peppery impression of extract. Finishes chewy and very long. From a yield of 14 h/h. (A second bottle, which I rated 91+, was more reduced and primary, with a distinct crushed fruit and violet character, and was showing more obvious acidity to go with its suave tannins.) (TGIC Importers, Woodland Hills, CA)

100% Malbec; aged in French oak for 14 months Very dense crimson. Rich and quite tawny on nose. Zesty. Sweet but lifted. Polished layers. Still pretty chewy, but all in the right place. Very well done!
