Terrazas de los Andes Single Vineyard Las Compuertas Malbec 2007
|Region||Argentina, Mendoza, Lujan de Cuyo|
|Brand||Terrazas de los Andes|
This dense red features flavors of raspberry ganache, blackberry and plum skin mixed with hints of maduro tobacco, licorice and mesquite, which fill out the tangy finish.
Initially it smells flat and earthy, with raisiny black fruit aromas. As it airs out it improves, but throughout its run it comes across heavy and wayward, with raisiny flavors and a simple dullness that prevents the wine from rising to the next level.
