ACHÁVAL-FERRER Malbec Mendoza Finca Bella Vista 2003
94 points, $85
Terrific nose of pure, driven blue and black fruits with a racy palate of blackberry, boysenberry, graphite, violets and minerals. Silky finish courses with fruit thanks to a riptide of acidity working underneath that keeps it all mouthwateringly fresh. D —James Molesworth

92 points, $100
This powerful red shows muscular tannins and a thick, meaty texture. Plum and black cherry flavors are ripe and clean, but struggle to emerge over the tannins. Notes of mineral and game give it a sense of place. It's still amazingly young; hard to predict —Thomas Matthews
