Blackberry and cinnamon aromas give way to ripe flavors of cherry and red currant. The richness of fruit gives this wine a soft texture with supple tannins. An excellent food wine.
The grapes are sourced from a region high in the Andes Mountains. The Rutini Vinayard in the Tupungato district are set at an elevation of 3,300 feet above sea level. The climate consists of bright sunny days, cool nights and a mild harvest, which allows for graduatl ripening and optimum level of maturity. Hand-tended and hand-harvested, the Rutini family's high altitude vineyards provide the foundation for Trumpeter.
