Achaval-Ferrer 2005 Malbec (Mendoza)

This reviewer's most vexing Argentine property strikes again with its first-ever appellation-style Mendoza Malbec. To me the wine is mildly bretty and staunch, with unrefined, bulky flavors, tartness at the core, and a strangely salty finish. Just this side of acceptable is the only way I can describe it. 6,500 cases produced. Michael Schachner
