Winemaker's Notes

30% Malbec, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 20% Syrah

Vineyard Made only in exceptional vintage years, the grapes for Apartado, meaning "that which is set apart", go through a rigorous selection of the Rutini's best vineyards sites. The Cabernet is sourced from the Agrelo district, Malbec from La Consulta, Merlot from Tupungato and Syrah from Lujan de Cayo. The result from blending grapes from different microclimates and terroirs within Mendoza's high-altitude wine-growing region produces complex, rich and elegant wines.

Tasting Notes This stunning blend possesses complex layers of black currant, cassis, plum, spice, smoke and chocolate. The tannins are the backbone of the firm structure and balance beautifully with the rich fruit, spice and oak.
