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.

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.

Drinks like a $90 bottle. Very solid, I would get it again.

Dark blackberry jam, black olives, blue cheese. Still think it's a typical statehouse wine.

One note, low acid, full body and smooth. Typical American palate steakhouse wine. Not an exceptional value for quality.

Malbec and Cabernet blend meets Old World techniques in the New World. As good as Argentina offers.

Dry with currant. Nice structure, but needs an hour to breathe to allow spice and leathery finish... Starting to taste like a Bordeaux.

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