Achaval Ferrer Mendoza 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon (Argentina), $16.14-$22.99, 90 points, poured a deep ruby trending burgundy purple/red with a broad clear wine ring and quite the leggy glass bowl.
Aromatic black currant, sandalwood, bright mint, and cedar were excellent.
Medium-bodied with mouthwatering acidity and lean comfortable tannins carried one of the best expression of blueberry flavor I've tasted, but other flavors associated with the aromas were very good.
Finished long on tangy pomegranate, that amazing mint, oak, easy warm spices, and a well-balanced 14.5% alcohol.
Paired perfectly with my hot and spicy beef chili.
Very high quality, price, ratio red wine (QPR), and though it is drinking just fine now, I'm guessing that in a few years it will be much better.
