Winemaker's Notes:

"Great color, extraction and overall balance for an under-$15 wine. There's slam-bang dark fruit, good mouthfeel, tightness and serious but controlled tannins. Oak plays its role on the back palate and finish, and in the end the wine is as savory and balanced as it is bold and fruity. Drink now thruogh 2010." 90 Points,

My Notes:

About Andeluna:

Andeluna Cellars is a winery and vineyard rich with history and romance –just like the country it calls home. This beautiful place is the inspiration for the name Andeluna, which was chosen to symbolize the romance and heritage of the Argentine moon illuminating the magnificent Andes Mountains that frame the Uco Valley. The combination of great vineyards growing classic varietals, with world-class winemaking, creates flavors and wines that cannot be found anywhere else.

Premium quality wine starts with premium quality grapes, and this is the essence of Andeluna. In the late 19th Century, many Italians immigrated to Argentina seeking opportunities that the rich and beautiful land provided. Searching for nothing less than the perfect place to make the world's best wine, they came to Mendoza and planted vineyards that began the heritage of Argentina's winemaking industry.

For generations, Argentina has grown and perfected the traditional grape varieties of the Old World – Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Chardonnay. But the feet of Andeluna don't rest in the soil of the Old World. Instead, they are planted firmly in the New World in a stunning series of vineyards that climb up the foothills of the Andes.
