Malbec, Achaval Ferrer 08'

Naked Wine Review 56
Wine: Malbec
Producer: Achaval Ferrer
Vintage: 08'
Region: Argentina
Price: 22.00
Date tasted: 10/1/10
Place tasted: In rare 84 degree Autumn sunshine, overlooking a glorious raging river from the gentle, warm pool of a natural hot springs in the Idaho wilderness.
Served with: Blue dragonflies, chubby naked men, and very pretty ladies. Would probably be good with food, any food. I think it would be very nice with grilled steak, burgers, or most any red meat...or how about duck? Yes, good with duck; And I don't even like duck, except as friends. On second thought, lets give the duck a miss.
Appearance: Opaque blood red with muted garnet highlights.
On the snoot she boasts the scent of the rare and beautiful Argentinean paintberry.
Taste: A beautifully dry yet refreshing burst of condensed red raspberry that holds the palates attention like that special smiling naked dancer that always steals the show at that one place downtown you've only heard folks talk about, but never actually been to yourself. On the finish, prepare yourself for a lovely midnight walk down a long, captivating, dusty path of chewy tannins and faint licorice spice.
Balance: Well balanced, medium bottom..I mean body. Imagine perfection. I want more.
Comments: Bite into it with both fangs. It's a sexy, exciting, quite spooky little wine. I loved it, and so saved it for my Samhain review. Blessed be.
