Terrazas de Los Andes 'Cheval des Andes', Mendoza, Argentina 2013

Cheval des Andes is a venture of one of the most prestigious Chateaus of Bordeaux, Cheval Blanc, and the best vineyards of Terrazas de Los Andes in Mendoza Argentina. The result is a Grand Cru Malbec from the Andes!

Each year winery is producing better wines and this latest vintage of 2013 is the best so far. Ripe and generous with massive blackcurrant and blackberry but not overblown, elegant. Very fine tannins, very long floral finish. Simply gorgeous now, but will develop more.

The purity of fruit is so impressive here with flowers, dark fruit, and strawberries. Full body, ultra-fine tannins, and a focus and beauty that makes you think. So long and elegant.

It has great balance and freshness, with great elegance, and super-refined tannins. I've never tasted such an elegant Cheval des Andes, all about finesse and balance. Bravo to the new team! I'm really looking forward to tasting the following vintages.
