More information on wine critics and ratings

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.

The winery has been named after the "terraces" situated at different altitudes upon which the vines are grown. Within these unique microclimates, Terrazas de los Andes presents a range of wines that offer great fruit concentration and varietal character. Cheval des Andes is a balanced and elegant blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Petit Verdot with important ageing potential as a collector´s wine. Read more

Ripe, chunky black-fruit aromas are swathed in minty oak and vanilla, while accents of black olive and prune are part of the nose. A round, full palate is enlivened by tartaric kick before going quiet, while ripe berry, prune and cassis flavors finish flat and dense. Drink now

Robert Parker (RP) : 91 Points (2014)
The 2014 Single Vineyard Las Compuertas Malbec comes from an old massal selection of Malbec planted in 1929 at 1,070 meters in altitude in one of the higher and cooler zones of Luján de Cuyo. This is a classical Malbec from a traditional zone. It aged for 16 to 18 months in French oak barrels, 50% of them new. It still shows some of the character of the wines from a past era, with notable ripeness and oak, some smoky and chocolaty notes, fine-grained, abundant tannins, moderate acidity and a dry finish, but it's fresher and better balanced and less rustic. I look forward to tasting more-recent vintages, like 2016, to see where this is going, as I think there is an ongoing change here... 40,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in March 2016.

James Suckling (JS) : 97 Points (2013)
A red with amazing depth and finesse. Full to medium body plus ultra-fine tannins that give the wine incredible length and refinement. So much slate and stone character. Blue fruit too. Hints of black chocolate. September 2016 release. Drink or hold.

Wine Spectator (WS) : 91 Points (2010)
A well-sculpted and powerful red, with dried blackberry, raspberry and plum pudding flavors anchored by Asian spice and tar accents. Concentrated dark chocolate and cocoa powder notes fill the lip-smacking finish. Drink now through 2020.
