2018 Terrazas de Los Andes Grand Malbec
Dense inky black colour with a deep dark red black hue. Elevated aromas of violet, blackcurrant, liquorice and blueberry meld into notions of graphite, vanillin cedar, earthy black olive and dried herbs. Rich blackcurrant and liquorice fruits drive the palate backed by a stern tannin structure and vibrant acidity. Dried herb, graphite, toasty cedar and pepper characters lie underneath. Fabulous depth concluding with a long robust aftertaste.
Cellar 6-8 years.
Discreetly plush on the nose with blackberries, blueberries and violets. Licorice, too. Full body. Firm and very silky tannins give this real form and structure, suggesting the need to age for at least three to four years. Be patient. Drink after 2024.
