Bodega Renacer Enamore 2007
Other Red Blends from Argentina, South America
Scramble the letters in AMARONE and you get ENAMORE! An exciting, innovative wine produced from a blend of Malbec, Syrah, Bonarda and Cabernet Franc uniquely dried and vinified in the Amarone style. A truly unique joint production between Allegrini (renowned Italian producer of Amarone) and Bodega Renacer. The grapes that produce Enamore are sourced from 50+ years old vines located in three distinct high altitude vineyards from the Mendoza region in Argentina. The grapes are dried on the vines (appassimento), until they loose 1/3 of their weight. After a prolonged fermentation (both alcoholic and malolactic) the wine is aged in new French barriques for 12 months
Dark ruby red in color, Enamore offers supple aromas of ripe berries, raisin, and plums. Sensual notes of exotic spices, charcoal and chocolate are seamlessly layered with the fruit. Full bodied, rich and complex, with a long finish beautifully framed by fine-grained tannins. This is a very special wine that will surprise many wine lovers. Pair with semi soft cheese, dark chocolate, and pasta with mushroom sauce.
The Wine Advocate - "The 2007 Enamore is a blend of 60% Malbec, 23% Cabernet Franc, and the balance Syrah, Bonarda, and Cabernet Sauvignon. It was sourced from own-rooted vines over 50 years of age and aged for 12 months in seasoned French oak. A glass-staining opaque purple, it offers up a fragrant perfume of cedar, spice box, lavender, damp earth, and black cherry. Opulent on the palate, it is dense and sweetly-fruited with complex black fruit flavors, plenty of spice, ripe tannin, and a lengthy finish. Cellar it for 2-3 years and drink it from 2011 to 2019. "
Wine Spectator - "Shows a sweet, dried fruit style, with raisin and date hints that stay fresh, thanks to layers of crushed currant and black cherry fruit. The long, velvety finish lingers with a dash of incense. Malbec, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Bonarda. Drink now through 2011. 640 cases made."
International Wine Cellar - "Saturated medium ruby. Slightly raisiny aromas of dried fruits and licorice. On the palate, very sweet, palate-saturating dark berry flavors are lifted by bracing acidity , yet the wine's creamy texture gives it plenty of immediate sex appeal. Substantial tannins melt into the tongue on the persistent finish. This would be a terrific wine with red meat. Made from grapes dried on the vine and vinified in the Amarone style."

About ArgentinaView a map of Argentina wineries (ahr-jen-TEE-nah)
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%.
