Terrazas de Los Andes Cheval des Andes Mendoza Malbec Blend 2012

$89.99

Fabulous aromas of blackberry, spice and flower. Perfumed. Lavender, rose and lilac too. A wine that grows on the palate with extreme finesse and complexity that shows ultra-fine tannins, currants, and flowers. Super length. Mostly mablec with cabernet sauvignon and petit verdot. Best Cheval des Andes ever? Drink or hold. James Suckling

Pours a deep deep purple with soaring aromas of dark fruit, eucalyptus, and some game. Brooding dark berry/plum, cracked pepper, and that gaminess bringing up the rear. Good start as a lead off batter for our Thanksgiving lineup.

Crowd pleaser. A go to bottle when the wine list in sub par.

We had the 2012 Vintage on 6/11/2020. Tastes of blackberry, currents, violet, plum. Fine, dusty tannins. A big, fruit forward wine. A certain taste of the Andes.

Serious blend of Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon from high in the Andes blended by a team from Cheval Blanc. Conceived as a Grand Cru level wine this would be a perfect accompaniment to steak or a hearty beef dish. Plenty of tannins on the attack and a very long finish as the wine resolves from the up front Malbec into the smoother Cabernet Sauvignon influence.

Bigger and bolder than the last two vintages I have tasted. This one needs time in the glass to open. Fruit comes on strong initially but not overly oaky - super soft tannins. Once open it’s delightful - Malbec should always taste like this.

Fantastic Bordeaux-style blend from Mendoza. Blackberry, licorice and graphite on the nose. Espresso, grilled meat and dried oregano added on the palate. A little lingering cloves on the finish. A lot going on but harmonious.

High elevation fruit leads to a inky high concentrated grape with tons of character. Napa qualities but goes further to a nice place of spice and earth yet stops before the French barnyard funk. Will start looking at Mendoza more.
