92 points "The 2005 Quimera is 37% Malbec, 28% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Cabernet Franc. Unlike the 2004, it received only 40% new oak for 12 months. Stylistically the wines are very similar both in terms of flavor and aging potential. The 2005 is just more firm and structured. Founded only in 1998, Achaval-Ferrer is already established as one of Argentina’s benchmark wineries. They specialize in single vineyard Malbecs from prime Mendoza sites." This blend of malbec, cabernet sauvignon and merlot comes from La Consulta, Medrano and Tupungato. It's a delicious world-class wine from a winery that has been getting amazing accolades from the press in recent years. Delicious! "
