Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
Reviewer, Jay Miller - A barrel sample of the 2007 Finca Bella Vista, sourced from a vineyard planted in 1910, is super-perfumed with aromas of black raspberry, black cherry, floral notes, and mineral that is already revealing complexity. The wine is impeccably balanced, has an elegant personality despite its size, layers of flavor, and a very lengthy finish. Give it five years in the cellar and drink it from 2013 to 2030.

Reviewer, Jay Miller - The 2007 Finca Bella Vista is the first bottling of this cuvee since the 2004 vintage because 2005 and 2006 were wiped out by hail. The Bella Vista vineyard was planted in 1910 with yields for this wine at a miniscule 0.75 tons per acre. The wine was aged for 15 months in 100% new French oak. A glass-coating opaque purple, it offers up an alluring bouquet of smoke, scorched earth, incense, violets, black cherry, and blackberry. Medium- to full-bodied, velvety-textured, and surprisingly forward, this voluptuous effort has gobs of layered sweet fruit, earth and spice notes, plenty of concealed fine grained tannin, and a lengthy finish. The temptation will be to drink this hedonistic effort without delay. However, it will reward extended cellaring and should be at its best from 2013 to 2022.

Very dense but supersleek, with gorgeous boysenberry and raspberry confiture notes stitched together by melted licorice, black tea and fruitcake notes. The long finish just glides along despite its obvious weight. Shows impressive precision and balance. Drink now through 2015.
 

Additional Information

Varietal :
Malbec
Though Malbec is now widely known as a varietal wine made in Argentina, it is actually a French red-wine grape traditionally blended with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and others to produce Bordeaux wines. Ripe plum and blackberry define the nose. Tight tannins and an earthy, woody quality make Malbecs a great match for red meat. View all our additional Malbec items
Region :
Argentina
Wine lovers came to know Argentinean wines through an almost-forgotten grape from France: Malbec. In Mendoza, the center of Argentina's wine industry, sunny days, an arid climate and mountainous terrain create ideal growing conditions for Malbec to thrive. In addition to Malbec, Chardonnay and other noble grape varieties that flourish in Argentina, a little-known white grape called Torront├Ęs is gaining favor. Look for wines from producers like Bodegas Renacer, Don Miguel Gascon and Navarro Correas. View all our items from Argentina
