Appearance: Clear, opaque ruby, paler rims with legs Nose: Clean, showing developing and medium intensity aromas of plum, prune, blackberry, sweet spice, smoke, earth and floral. Palate: Dry with medium acidity, Medium tannin which is ripe and smooth. Medium plus alcohol level and medium body, with medium intensity of prune, plum, blackberry, liquorice, sweet spice, earth and oak. Silky and elegant tannin, with a hint of floral note. Medium length. Conclusion: Very good quality, with a good complexity in the blend of Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. A very interesting wine which has a good balance and an elegance that is more akin to the old world wines. This wine is ready to drink but can be further developed for another 3-5 years.
I tried this at a wine tasting. It was the last wine of the day which probably wasn't the best of ideas. I think we should have had this first so we could savor the deliciousness of it. One person described this as being "Better than Catholic school girl sex." We were a little toasted at that point. But in a way, he was right. To this day, it remains in my top 2 favorite wines. I've had it a couple times since that first taste. Every time it is better.
Ok bgt neh...
External Reviews for Cheval des Andes
Cheval des Andes wines are a blend of Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from the "Las Compuertas" vineyards near Mendoza, in the Cordilleras, or foothills, of the Andes. The Malbec vines have never been grafted.
An enthralling nose of sandalwood, floral notes, exotic spices, a velvety texture, complex flavors, and an overall suave personality in the manner of a First Growth Bordeaux.
"Cheval des Andes is the outcome of joint venture between Cheval Blanc and Terrazas de los Andes
Dark and inviting, with crushed plum, currant paste and warm fig sauce flavors backed by alluring cocoa and espresso notes. This has a very silky texture, with a long, suave finish. Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2011. 1,500 cases imported. JM - Wine Spectator Magazine 92 Points** Only 4 in Stock **
