Cheval des Andes Private Cellar 2006
The 2006 vintage is superb throughout Mendoza and this wine, as in many other bodegas I visited in April 2008, shows off the extra dimension of complexity made possible in an exceptional year. The wine is composed entirely of Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. It is a bit more saturated than the 2005 with a splendid perfume of pain grille, mineral, espresso, black cherry, and black raspberry that leaps from the glass. More opulent and layered than the 2005, it also conceals a bit more structure. The finish seems to go on and on. Drink it from 2015 to 2035.
A joint venture between Terrazas de los Andes and the legendary Château Cheval Blanc in Bordeaux. The vineyards are located on a select parcel of the most treasured terroir in Argentina, and made up of ungrafted vines dating back to 1929. The wine is made in the spirit of Cheval Blanc, yet displays the fruit intensity of its Argentinean roots.
