About Terrazas de los Andes
In the 1950s, Moet realized that the global demand for sparkling wines was outpacing their production capabilities. They began searching for ideal vineyard locations outside of France. They ended up settling on Mendoza, founding Bodegas Chandon, known for its fruity sparkling wines.

(a 50/50 blend of cabernet sauvignon and malbec): Good full, bright ruby to the rim. Complex nose melds black raspberry, violet, mocha, chocolate, sexy oak tones and a lightly leafy herbal character. Sweet, creamy and suave in the mouth, with intense dark berry fruit complicated by game, truffle and pepper nuances. Broad tannins arrive late, allowing this very rich wine to expand on the back end, which echoes with tangy pepper. Already shows great sex appeal but this will be even better for five or six years of additional cellaring.
