Crush of the Week: Achaval-Ferrer Quimera Mendoza 2003

Any of the Quimera wines by Achaval-Ferrer are truly a pleasure to drink.  Really really lovely stuff.  According to Wine Spectator the Quimera 2003 is a “Really juicy red, with raspberry, red currant and boysenberry fruit flavors mixed with racy mineral, briar and floral notes. Long, mouthwatering finish brings you back for more. Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. ” –JM

If we were using any more than 1/2 a cup in the braised Duck recipe I would never recommend cooking with it but it does make a lovely sauce.
