Winemaker's Notes

The vineyards surround the city of San Rafael in southern Mendoza, and are planted 2,600 feet above sea-level. The foothills of the Andes rise above the vineyards and act as a barrier from the damp winds coming off the Pacific ocean. This unique landscape creates an ideal microclimate with moderately warm summers with warm days and cool nights. Winter temperatures fall below freezing at times. The soil is sandy-loam, calcarous and alluvial. There is little rainfall here, so the vineyards are naturally irrigated by runoff from the snow melting on the tops of the Andes. Two rivers, the Diamante and the Atuel also help irrigate the region.

Tasting Notes
Blend: 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 10% Malbec Ripe fruit aromas are followed by flavors of raspberries and cassis along with a little cocoa and spice. The layers of fruit and spice are finished by notes of black pepper and fruit.

Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
