Terrazas de Los Andes Malbec Reserva 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Dichtes Kirschrot, einen typischeren Vertreter der Paraderebsorte Argentiniens kann man sich kaum wünschen. Dieser Malbec zeigt die schönsten Facetten, begonnen mit der typisch intensiven Farbe, dem intensiven Bouquet, das an Pflaume, Schwarzkirsche, Balsam, Lavendel und schwarzen Trüffel erinnert. Am Gaumen ist er schön strukturiert, von reifem Tannin durchwoben und bleibt aromatisch-lange im Finale.
