94 Points - Wine Advocate "The 2005 Cheval des Andes is made up of 60% Malbec 26% Cabernet Sauvignon 7% Merlot and 7% Petit Verdot. Purple-colored it exhibits a complex bouquet of wood smoke scorched earth violets black cherry and blackberry liqueur. On the palate it is remarkably elegant with a velvety texture superb depth savory flavors ripe tannin and 5-7 years of aging potential. Its drinking window will begin in 2014 and last through 2030 at the least." 92 Points - Wine Enthusiast "Consistency in the wine world is a virtue, and Cheval covers the consistency issue with ease. Aromas of earth, mushroom, leather and so forth add an Old World touch to this New World Malbec-Cabernet blend. An interesting wine that grabs and holds your attention." 92 Points - Wine Spectator "Dark and inviting, with crushed plum, currant paste and warm fig sauce flavors backed with 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."

Cheval des Andes is the outcome of joint venture between Cheval Blanc and Terrazas de los Andes, notably the first and only one ever for Cheval Blanc, originated as Pierre Lurton, Cheval Blanc's Director, sought out a special terroir outside France in which to apply the deep and historial knowledge of blending.

An Argentine Malbec blend with a Bordeaux pedigree that’s hard to beat. Cheval des Andes is owned by the legendary Saint-Emilion producer, Chateau Cheval Blanc. The grapes are sourced from their estate vineyard in Lujan de Cuyo in Mendoza. The Malbec is from old, ungrafted vines averaging 74 years of age. The Cabernet portion is aged in new French oak and the Malbec is aged in second use French oak a total of 18 months. The Wine Advocate rated it 94 points saying: “The 2005 Cheval des Andes is made up of 60% Malbec, 26% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, and 7% Petit Verdot. Purple-colored, it exhibits a complex bouquet of wood smoke, scorched earth, violets, black cherry, and blackberry liqueur. On the palate it is remarkably elegant with a velvety texture, superb depth, savory flavors, ripe tannin, and 5-7 years of aging potential. Its drinking window will begin in 2014 and last through 2030 at the least.” On Sale, extremely Limited!!
