Achaval Ferrer, Malbec, 2009

I can't decide if I like this 2009 Malbec from Argentina or not. The Achaval Ferrer is not bad. It has a deep ruby red color and smells good. At first, a faint hint of vanilla comes to mind. The taste is that of a young malbec but it has a weird after taste. It leaves a bit a sticky and bitter flavor in the mouth. It  feels almost as if the skin of the grapes were still in there somehow. Overall, it's a nice experience but I think it should age some more before we call it a winner. At $15, it's a bit pricey.
