Terrazas de Los Andes Single Vineyard las Compuertas Malbec 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Full-bodied and rounded, this fairly pops in the mouth with the richness of black fruits such as currants, cherries and blueberries. A second nose boasts flowery notes recalling violets, mint and rosemary. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and blond tobacco are also present. While it offers a generous, juicy and fleshy palate, the balance it strikes between concentration and sophistication is a highlight. Deep and intensely purple in your glass, the finish is long, as is the pleasure.
