The vines in Finca Mirador were planted half in 1928 and half in 1942, the latter pruned double-Guyot.

The vines in Finca Mirador were planted half in 1928 and half in 1942, the latter pruned double-Guyot. The 2010 Finca Mirador is from the Medrano sub-region, originating from heavier, clayey soils and aged in new French barrels for 16 months. The nose is more expressive than the Finca Bella Vista with cassis and blueberry aromas imbued with a sorbet like freshness and vivacity. After 20 minutes, there is an estuarine, oyster shell scent emerging. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins and a surprising sense of reserve and sophistication that could probably show Bordeaux a few lessons in restraint! It draws you in to its complexity and its precise, delineated finish of black currant pastille, sea salt and crushed stone that lingers long in the mouth. This is an outstanding Argentinean Malbec. Drink 2016-2035.

Dark, racy and aromatic, as hints of spice box, cedar and underbrush highlight the pure blackberry, cassis and raspberry flavors. Well-balanced, as fine tannins and a long, complex finish show off the wine's pedigree...
