Terrazas de Los Andes Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Intense red with violet shades. Concentrated notes of spice and red fruits including red currants and raspberries dominate. Vanilla and coconut nuances mingle with toast. A structured wine that stands out for its intensity of fruit and roundness on the palette. The soft tannins are well blended creating an intense, vivacious yet smooth mouthfeel.

this wine boasts a layered structure and a delicious complexity, both of which combine to create an intensely fulfilling mouth-feel. Its velvety and syrupy characteristics portray a soft and approachable wine. On the palette, black fruit and cassis path
