ACHÁVAL-FERRER Quimera Mendoza 2004
93 points, $48
Racy, almost piercing, with graphite, violet, mineral and boysenberry notes rushing along fine tannins and acidity. Long finish, but on the tight side for now, so cellar. Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Best from 2007 through 2014. —James Molesworth
