Winemaker's Notes

"Focused, streamlined wine, with raspberry, cassis, violet and mineral flavors. Long finish. Remarkably racy, considering the dense, ripe fruit, so this should flesh out. Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Merlot. Drink now through 2005."
-Wine Spectator

Quimera is the search for the impossible: a perfect wine. It is a blended wine, based on Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Malbec is given a predominant role to create a true " Mendoza , Argentina " identity. We source the grapes from estate vineyards and long-term leased vineyards, selected for the age of their plants, and the excellency of their terroir. The goal in each vineyard is not a stand-alone varietal, but rather a component of a blend. Quimera has been thought as a chef thinks a great dish. In this way, when the creative side of the winemaker is set free, the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. The ideal never is achieved. But the road is worth traveling.
