Qaramy Finca 2005
Other Red Blends from Argentina, South America
Inky jet black with dark garnet hues this concentrated wine exudes complexity, fortitude and passion. Complex boysenberry, coffee, blueberry and leather aromas integrate intimately with smooth, lush-plum, leather, red-cranberry, cinnamon and dulce de leche flavors. A lingering finish of vibrant tannins and brilliant spices complete this harmonious experience.
Wine Enthusiast - "Solid and broad on the nose, with black cherry, berry and controlled rubbery aromas. Fresh, juicy and healthy on the palate, with good drive and dark, toasty flavors of black fruits, spice and chocolate. Spicy, warm and a bit complex on the finish. Malbec with Cab Sauvignon and Syrah; drink now."
In the Aymara nation, one of its key concepts is tolerance and the love for land, labor and manking. The result of tolerance, respect for nature and solidarity is what we want to represent with Qaramy. The wine symbolizes all these feelings, so it warms the soul and in that sense, is the perfect concoction to share with friends and loved you in all life's special moments.

Notable FactsUnlike its Chilean neighbor, Argentina's vineyards are spread out around the country. The best known region is Mendoza, almost parallel to Santiago to the west. Mendoza contains the sub-regions of Maipu (pronounced MY-pu) and San Rafael. Grape-wise, the most important white is Chardonnay, making wine similar to California's style on the variety. Another fun white grape to try is Torrontes. Almost only grown in Argentina, Torrontes makes wines that are crisp, aromatic and easy-drinking. Some of the best versions of this wine come from the northern region of Salta, with very high altitude vineyards. As for the reds, Cabernet Sauvignon is the main grape for many wines leaving the country, but Malbec, the grape Argentinians like to call their own, makes very distinctive wines that are structured, dense and velvety. Many more varieties happily grow in the country, but for export, and consistent quality, these are the primary grapes.

Alcohol By Volume GuideMost wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
