    This wine is an excellent example of a well made Malbec, it displays good body along with both red and black fruit flavors at a reasonable price.  A glass of this Malbec can be equally enjoyed and savored with food or alone.  I will be taking the advice of Dave De Simone, author and restaurateur, who suggests using your emotional reaction to a wine to describe its character and unique personality.  My descriptive feelings about Achaval-Ferrer Malbec 2011 would be agreeable, pleasing, appetizing, rich and vigorous. Wine Spectator gave it a rating of 92 points in 2012 and it is available in P.L.C.B. stores for $29.99 but can be found online for under $25.  This is a solid Malbec and worth the price.

  1. Yes, exceptional Malbec for $25. When compared to others in the same price range, this one really outshines most Malbecs. Great article, and thank you for the mention.

    Ahaval-Ferrer makes great wines – I had their Quimera ( Bordeaux blend) some time ago, it was outstanding.
