harvest note

The 2014 vintage in Mendoza was late due to uncommonly cold months of February and March, after an extremely hot and dry summer. Fortunately, no hail storms damaged the vineyards this year. The Valle de Uco vineyards produced more than their historical average while Lujan de Cuyo vineyards experienced a low production. Patience was key in achieving good maturity for the grapes – the reds show above average intensity of aromas and a good acidity. The alcohol content in the wines is slightly lower than usual. The 2014 harvest produced very good wines.

tasting note

Displays layered aromas of ripe, red fruits with black pepper and toasted oak notes before juicy red berry flavors on the palate; medium-bodied and balanced. The wine has smooth tannins and a touch of oak on the long finish.

food pairing

This wine has a charming character that is perfect for accompanying barbecues, pasta with intense sauces or hard and semi-hard cheese.
