It's Friday afternoon and as we frequently like to do, We have an offer for you that is simply OFF THE CHARTS!!

The Finca Bella Vista vineyard, home of the Archival Ferrer winery in the Luján de Cuyo district of Mendoza Argentina is simply one of the finest Malbec vineyards in the world. The 17 acre vineyard sits at 3200 ft above sea level and is comprised of alluvial limestone and sand soils over a deep layer of gravel. The low yielding vines (under 1000 cases) here are upwards of 100 years old allowing them to produce the very finest quality Malbec grapes. It would not be an overstatement to say that Bella Vista holds the quality level status "Grand Cru" vineyard.  

Winemakers Roberto Cipresso and Santiago Achával utilize a balanced New World meets Old World approach at Achaval-Ferrer. The yields in the vineyard are quite low (.8 tons/acre) and the fruit is all hand harvested. In the cellars the wine is fermented utilizing traditional techniques prior to aging in French oak barrels. 

Upon opening a bottle of the 2012 Finca Bella Vista one is immediately struck by the brilliant deep ruby hue and the legs that cling to the side of your glass as you give the wine a swirl. The aromatics leap out of the glass... violet, blackberry, and spice box. On the palate the wine is full bodied from front to back with ridiculous levels of concentration evident in the mid-palate and fine grained mature tannins on the close. Pop a cork and let it breath for an hour today or lay it down and watch it blossom over the next decade. This wine is a rock star through and through and should be a welcome addition to any serious red wine lovers cellar. Let's have a look at the press:

Antonio Galloni/Vinous: Rated 94 Points 
" Bright ruby. Rich, deep aromas of ripe blackberry, licorice, tropical dark chocolate and menthol plus a whiff of game, all lifted by a pungent mineral element. Plush, seamless and ripe, showing a chocolatey quality to its savory dark berry flavors but energized throughout by lively acidity. Boasts outstanding breadth and length, finishing with noble tannins and terrific length and lift. Wonderfully full and primary. Although this is impeccably balanced from the start it would be a shame not to give it time in bottle to fully express itself."

Wine Advocate:  Rated 93 Points 
"There is a great combination of floral and fresh characters and the Mediterranean profile with some aromas of dried herbs. The palate reveals a serious wine with grainy tannins that add an elegant rusticity."

Wine Enthusiast:  Rated 93 Points 
"Dusty cherry, wild berry and minerally aromas comprise a compact, deep nose that’s entirely inviting. Juicy, bold and bright on the palate, with sturdy tannins, this offers exotic notes of cumin and baking spices along with wild berry flavors. It’s elegant, complete and thorough on the finish; drink through 2020."

Wine Spectator: Rated 92 Points
"Unctuous, intensely fruity and pure, with red currant, dried raspberry, boysenberry and spiced cherry flavors, supported by lip-smacking acidity. The lively finish echoes with brambly notes. "
