Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2013 Malbec Terroir Selection is a blend from five different vineyards in four different terroirs of Mendoza: 60% from Albaneve Vineyard in Campo de los Andes in the Valle de Uco:15% from the Azamor Vineyard in Las Compuertas, Luján de Cuyo; 10% from the Alizarine Vineyard also in Las Compuertas;10% from the Serenade Vineyard in Alto Agrelo in Luján de Cuyo; and the remaining 5% from the Temis Vineyard that is located at El Cepillo in the Valle de Uco. After fermenting in small concrete vats, the wine matured in a combination of new and second-use French barriques for one year. This has high alcohol and high acidity, in an XL kind of balance, because you don't notice any edges or excess. It is serious and a little closed at first. It's very dark, almost opaque, with a nice mixture of wild berries and spices, slowly showing some violets and wet stone hints. The palate shows abundant, fine-grained tannins and very surprisingly nice freshness. It manages to show both power and elegance, not something easy. It slowly unfolds and shows more nuances. There is very good complexity here. 68,000 bottles produced.
