About quick reviews: "Quick reviews" are made on the run, often at large wine tastings, where the opportunity to settle in with a wine is limited.  Our typical reviews carry more depth.  Nonetheless, key elements on the nose or palate are indicated, along with Spirit of Wine rating.

Quickie tasting notes:  This is Achaval Ferrer Finca Mirador Malbec, Argentina, 2008, finished at 14% alcohol.  Deep mahogany in the glass in the glass, opaque in the center.  Deep and old world on the nose.  The palate is solid, with depth in its old world style, bold aromas and distinct tannins.  
 
Overall: Rates four stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale.  Priced for a splurge, but holds up to the promise.
