Cuvelier Los Andes Malbec 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

90 Points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous: "(60% of this wine was aged in oak): Bright medium ruby. Vibrant, penetrating aromas of blackberry, black cherry, violet and bitter chocolate; an essence of Malbec. Dense and seamless but youthful and light on its feet, showing lovely restrained sweetness but noteworthy thickness and depth to its pure, vibrant flavors of crushed dark berries and bitter chocolate. This suave, concentrated Malbec should open out beautifully with a few years of cellaring. Finishes with firm, ripe tannins and excellent sneaky length and energy. This is an awfully good value." 3/16 “…The Cuvelier family of Leoville-Poyferre in St. Julien is one of several French investors with projects in Argentina. Their Argentine adventure in the Uco Valley is called Cuvelier Los Andes, and they are part of the Michel Rolland-driven Clos de los Siete group…Very powerful, ripe, concentrated and well-oaked, modern reds are produced at this address…” Wine Advocate #212
