Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
With its deep, intense purple color, this inviting wine practically oozes aromas of wild black fruits like blackberries, and red fruits like plums and cherries. Secondary aromas include spices and flowers, like violets and mint. Secondary notes of black chocolate, vanilla and smoky tones are clearly present, brought out by aging in Oak. This wine is known for being complex but still balanced, lively and fresh, due to a well-integrated acidity. Robust, structured, with a lingering finish in the mouth.
Ratings
Wine Advocate - 91 Pts: "The 2009 Terrazas Single Vineyard Malbec las Compuertas showed much better, but displayed the heat of the 2009 vintage. It is very dark-colored, almost opaque, with a brooding nose of ripe cassis, blueberries, black olives and subtle smoked notes. The palate is full-bodied, with round-tannins, good stuffing and structure to age with style. Drink 2015-2020". LGutierrez
