Achaval Ferrer, Finca Altamira 2013
Nice and round Malbec with typical flowerish aromas and straight plum and blackberries in the mouth. Not that attractive as the partners today. I´d say no more than 92 points for an 85 bucks bottle worth not even half the money.
Republica Malbec 2013
Now we´ve got a great Malbec. Balanced and very attractive that will go quite short in the bottle. Deep and round. Long lasting and sweet mouth. A 96 point Malbec close to 30 bucks and one of the best Malbecs in today´s Argentina pampas.
De Angeles, Gran Malbec 2012
A 40 dollars bottle worth much much more. Even deeper and dark with stronger notes. A serious rival to Republica Malbec of Matias Ricchitelli. Actually a bit higher in finesse. I´d say a 97 points wonderfull young Malbec.
Primus Malbec 2004 (Bodega Salentein)
A 50 dollars Malbec with even more complexities and layers of an ever ageing wine. Still strong and straight but with beautiful notes of old tannins and woody added. A 97 points Malbec worthwhile searching.
