92The Wine Advocate

Spice box, cedar, violets, black currant, and blackberry aromas are followed by a ripe, elegantly styled Cabernet...

92Wine Spectator

Dark, loamy and ambitious for the vintage, but pulls it off with layers of ripe black currant paste, fig sauce and mulled plum flavors. Alluring bittersweet cocoa and espresso notes flash on the broad, dense finish.

91Stephen Tanzer

Plum, redcurrant, mocha, cola and sandalwood on the nose. Rich, creamy and deep but lively, with good lift and definition to the flavors of dark plum, graphite, spices, sassafras, licorice and truffle. Finishes with lush, broad tannins and excellent length.


Argentina, Mendoza (Cuyo)

Mendoza on the western edge of Argentina is the nation’s largest and most important wine producing region. With about a billion acres under vine, the region of Mendoza alone has nearly half as many vineyards acres as all of the United States. Located on the edge of the Andes, vineyards here are high, usually 2,000 to 3,600 feet above sea level, yet they enjoy a relatively temperate climate and four distinct seasons. The soil is sandy and alluvial with clay underneath and moderate rainfall encourages growth. Historically Argentina, and Mendoza, grew pink skin grapes for slightly sweet pink or white wines. Those grapes are still grown for bulk jug wine. Since the late 1980s, however, Malbec has been Mendoza’s most important grape, since it makes a rich, dark, robust, age-worth red. The second most important red grape is Bonarda, which is thought to be the same grape that California growers know as Charbono. Italian and Spanish red grapes including Sangiovese, Barbera and Tempranillo were brought by immigrants, and they are grown today. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, Torrontés and numerous other red and white grapes are also grown successfully.


Red Wine, Cabernet Sauvignon

One of the most widely grown grape varieties, it can be found in nearly every wine growing region. A cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. It’s a hardy vine that produces a full-bodied wine with high tannins and great aging potential.
