Crush of the Week – Achaval Ferrer Malbec 2007

achaval-ferrer-malbec-20072The entry level (a blend from four vineyards) 2007 Malbec from Achaval-Ferrer is sure to please, especially on sale at $16.99 a bottle and with 91 points from Wine Spectator.  We enjoyed the beautiful core of racy fruit, dark raspberry and boysenberry with a piercing mineral streak on the finish along with a peppery, floral lift gives this a lot of intriguing complexity. Quite young and primary this should settle in nicely with a year or two of bottle age. Once again Achaval Ferrer has produced another rock solid effort and an outstanding value considering what’s in the bottle. Drink now through 2010.
