TASTING NOTES

"Super refined and beautiful with flowers, spices, dried fruit and hints of stones. Medium to full body with very fine tannins and a gorgeous finish. Shows great finesse and depth. Savory character, as always, but in check. Drink in 2022." JamesSuckling.com, July 2019

"...more red fruit on the nose, which is subtle and elegant...a vintage of precision and with great aging potential. I think this wine is the most elegant produced so far. Bravo!..." (97+ points) Luis Gutiérrez, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #244, August 2019

"Bright, dark red-ruby. Wild, musky scents and flavors of black raspberry, black pepper, olive tapenade, licorice and rocky salinity. Plush, savory and seamless; a mouthcoating Malbec-based blend with superb depth and palate presence. As concentrated as this wine is, it's medium-bodied in the style of this cooler year but also remarkably nuanced and harmonious from the start, communicating an impression of restrained sweetness. Finishes extremely long and edge-free, with noble tannins and palate-saturating breadth. Incidentally, with this 2016, Cheval des Andes is now made entirely with estate fruit, from their properties in La Compuertas and Altamira. (aged in 70% new oak)" Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com, July 2019
