Terra Andina combines the promise and innovation of new world winemaking with the tradition and passion of old world ideals. The resulting wines are as seductive in their fruit forward style as they are armonious in their balance.
External Reviews for Terra Andina Malbec Petit Verdot
Ripe and juicy, with mint, sweet spice and tasty mixed berry fruit that pushes along a briary edge. Drink now.
The 2008 Malbec-Petit Verdot Altos is a saturated purple/black color with outstanding tar, licorice, blackberry, and blackcurrant aromas. It is better balanced than the Syrah-Cabernet blend but will still require significant cellaring. Give it 5-7 years and drink it from 2015 to 2028. All of Terra Andina's wines are worthy of recommendation.
