Professional Wine Reviews for Terrazas De Los Andes Malbec Las Compuertas Single Vineyard 2015

Rated 93 by James Suckling
A soft and focused red with plum, berry and chocolate aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, layered and delicious. Flavorful finish. Available in November. Ready now.
Rated 90 by Vinous Media
Dark ruby-red. Less roasted on the nose than the 2014 version, offering scents of cassis, ripe plum and red cherries macerated in alcohol. Very plush and ripe but dry, and a step up in concentration and density from the ’14. Still more a wine of breadth than verticality but at least as dark in its fruit character as the ’14 and firmer, longer and more vibrant on the finish. A bit less sweet on the end than the 2014 example, showing a positive hint of mintiness. Moureau expressed the opinion that peak drinkability for this bottling is typically about six or seven years after the vintage, ”then it loses fruit and freshness even if shows more complexity.”

Winery Terrazas De Los Andes

Region: Cuyo

Situated in and around the Andean mountains, the Cuyo region of Argentina has long been associated with the best of the country's wine industry. Including now world famous provinces such as Mendoza and La Rioja, Argentina's Cuyo region has something of an ideal environment for the cultivation of high quality grapes – including Argentina's flagship varietal, the Malbec – which includes the beautiful Desaguadero River and its tributaries. Although the region itself is quite dry and arid, the soils have a remarkably high mineral content, and plenty of iron which gives it the distinctive red color associated with Cuyo. For several decades now, wineries in Cuyo have been booming, as more and more of the global wine audience begin to recognize the region's remarkable potential for rich and flavorful wines.

Country: Argentina

In the dry, arid deserts of Argentina, wineries and winemakers are focusing their efforts on producing high quality wines for the world market. By experimenting with both traditional and modern methods and technologies, they have found great success with a wide variety of grapes well suited to the conditions of the country, particularly Malbec, Bonarda and Cabernet Sauvignon. Over the past decade, Argentinian wineries have continued to aim high, and this has led to a range of new wines using grape varietals not typically associated with the country. The cooler regions of Argentina are seeing more vineyards being planted with Cabernet Franc and Pinot Noir varietals, something that is beginning to produce fantastic results, which are at once representative of the country's wines - with all their fruity and bold character - but are also pushing the boundaries of what we expect from a New World country.
