Terrazas de los Andes Grand Malbec is our fullest expression of Malbec. It is the result of blending wines from selected plots of three of our most exceptional high-altitude vineyards.

Bright deep ruby. Spectacular aromas of dark berries, espresso, mocha, violet, musky herbs, anise, soy sauce and raw burger. Suave in grain but very backward and minerally; in fact, even tighter than the Grand Cabernet even if it shares that wine's nobility of texture. Intense flavors of blackberry, boysenberry, licorice and violet pastille are given added pungency and definition by chalky minerality. This very dense but tightly wound wine conveys a higher-acid impression than the Cabernet and thus comes across as less sweet. With its chalky energy and tannic spine, its rising, bracing finish is almost painful today. This Malbec should evolve at a snail's pace.
