CHEATEAU CUVELIER LOS ANDES 2008 CUVELIER LOS ANDES GRAND VIN
"Bright, full medium ruby. Liqueur-like aromas of blackberry, cassis and licorice complicated by a musky truffley quality. Velvety and rich, with a saline nuance to the highly concentrated dark berry and fig flavors. Finishes with strong, dusty tannins and excellent length."
