2005 Cuvelier Los Andes Grand Vin Mendoza

SKU #1039403

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Grand Vin is a blend of 70% Malbec, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Syrah, 7% Merlot, and 4% Petit Verdot. It was aged in French oak for 12 months and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Inky purple, the wine has an alluring perfume of wood smoke, spice box, pencil lead, black cherry, and black currant. This leads to a medium to full-bodied wine with an intense attack, layers of spicy black fruits, licorice, and chocolate. All components are nicely integrated and lead to a lengthy, pure finish. This Bordeaux-inspired wine should blossom over the next 10-12 years and drink well through 2030. Drink 2018 - 2030." (12/07) K&L Wine Merchants: "Cuvelier is owned by Leoville Poyferre a 2nd Growth Bordeaux property in the Medoc. But this wine is structured like an elegant finesse filled St.-Emilion. The spicy mulberry and plum flavors are excellently executed over the entire length of the palate. Michel Roland had a hand in making this wine and his influence is felt in the laser sharp focus and structure of this sophisticated Argentinean wine. Drink now or age it the way you would a fine Right Bank Bordeaux." Chip Hammack
