Winemaker's Notes

Almost a century ago, Bodegas Escorihuela Gascon created the first varietal Malbec blend to acquire wedspread recognition in Argentina. This wine was a favorite of two time president and husband of Evita, Juan Peron. The wine is named in honor of him. The grapes come from the best growing areas in Mendoza (Chile's Napa Valley).

"Anyone looking for a whole lot of wine for not too much cash will be pleased with this blend, named for former Argentinean president Juan Perón, husband of Evita. Back to the wine: it's rich, heady and borderline opulent, with ripe tannins, plumpness and hedonistic fruit." -Wine Enthusiast, Editor's Choice

Blend: 85% Malbec, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Syrah
