Terrazas de los Andes Malbec Reserva 2016

Mendoza, ArgentinaArgentine wine is continuing to reinvent itself, but this is firmly within the old guard style of malbec. The fruit is overshadowed by assertive oak, with loads of espresso and dark chocolate. Underneath are some jammy black fruits, which are not fully defined. Medium-full bodied, this has Mendoza's characteristic plush texture with good mid-palate weight, which can be a challenge with malbec. It would be nice to see the fruit come through more, but it's well made, and fans of big reds will find a lot to like here.Tasted: 06 November 2019Tasted by: Geoffrey Moss MWPrices:
