Winemaker's Notes

A joint venture between Terrazas de Los Andes and Château Cheval Blanc, this wine is a groundbreaking blend of legendary Bordeaux "First Growth" winemaking expertise with the very best terroir in Argentina. The result is a New World Grand Cru: refined, subtle and complex.

Color: Deep black cherry with mauve glints on the rim.

Aroma: Upon agitating, dried apricots and floral notes mix with warm scents of tobacco, red berry fruit macerated in brandy, cherry stones and homemade jam, together with cedar-wood, bay leaves and chocolate.

Palate: Opens on the palate warm and balanced, with freshness and minerals coming through on the mid-palate, along with black currant, spices and almond. Highly integrated, sweet tannins mingle with a long and elegant finish.
