Terrazas de los Andes "Las Compuertas" Single Vineyard Lujan de Cuyo Malbec 2014

94 James Suckling

(6/29/2018) "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 Lujan 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. Drink Date: 2018 - 2022."

(6/2018) "(From vines on a plateau above Agrelo on the eastern side of the valley; the amount of limestone in this soil is unusual for the area, which is not normally a prime place for Malbec): Bright red-ruby. Highly aromatic perfume of blackberry, violet and licorice, plus a touch of peppery wildness; I was reminded both of Pinot Noir and northern Rhone Syrah. Plush, savory, pungent wine with distinctive limestone energy giving the middle palate a light touch. Utterly fine-grained wine with terrific subtle flavor intensity and grip. Finishes with very smooth tannins and lovely rising floral length. A very complex, penetrating Malbec with lovely restrained sweetness."

(7/2017) "(14.5% alcohol; from very old vines on stony soil close to the river; 50% done in tank): Bright red-ruby. Blackberry and violet scents are accented by stony minerality. A sweet, pliant fruit bomb on the palate; surprisingly fleshy and broad but with lovely inner-mouth floral lift. An element of smoky minerality contributes complexity to the berry and plum fruit. Finishes with seamless tannins and excellent length. Quite substantial for this entry-level wine."
