Winemaker's Notes:

Varieties: Chardonnay, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon Vineyard Age: 12, 45, 30 years (in variety order) Yield: 3.0-4.5 tons / acre (1-1.5 plants per bottle) Oak:12 months, 80-100% French Terrazas Reserva wines are hand-harvested from select estate vineyards within the top districts of Mendoza: Tupungato, Vistalba, Perdriel and Cruz de Piedra.

Developed with extensive focus on vineyard management, and only released during excellent vintages, these wines stand out for their aromatic intensity and complex style.

Uno de mis vinos favoritos. Gracias a este vino me volví fan del Malbec. Tal como lo Chopine40, tiene que ser 2003. Recuerdo haber probado el 2006 creo y no era tan bueno.
