95 points "Designation: Highly Recommended 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. Drink now through 2018. 818 cases made" Best 2008-2018

94 points "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. In a brief period of time, Achaval Ferrer has become one of Argentina’s benchmark wineries. A visit to the winery in April 2008 was eye-opening. They export 85% of their production, 40% to the USA. The newest releases will not disappoint. "
