Winemaker's Notes

This is the second vintage of this wine, made by the joint venture between Terrazas de los Andes and Chateau Cheval-Blanc.

60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Malbec from the areas of Las Compuertas/Lujan de Cuyo.

The 2002 vintage is definitely more "new world" than its predecessor. Bigger and fuller, it clearly shows its pedigree (2002 was an excellent vintage for Mendoza reds). Color is deep dark rubi-red, with a subtle nose at first…. But, as you play with your glass the nose "explodes" and shows its full power - hints of tobacco and red fruit jelly appear. On the palate, it provides a big mouthful that is intense yet not overpowering, no aggressive alcoholic kick that you sometimes find in new world young wines with "big wine" aspirations. Well rounded tannic structure, elegant and long finish.
