Winemaker's Notes:

Dark fruit on the nose leads to flavors of dried cherries and dark fruit with a hint of chocolate in this dense and structured wine. Lots of berryfruit and cherry in the mouth along with a touch of smoke. The finish lingers with dark ripe fruit, balanced acidity and a smooth mouthfeel.
My Notes:

About Bodegas Alma Negra:

Through many business encounters in Argentina, Alex Bartholomaus and Ernesto Catena discovered they were kindred spirits when it comes to beauty and wine. They decided to collaborate on a wine that would symbolize many of the different thing in which they believe. Their approach to the task was to not solely focus on the wine, but to also reminisce about the past year. They talked about the weather, family, polo, great meals and travel. Before they knew it, many layers of beauty were united into one wine - Alma Negra. Alma Negra literally means "dark soul" and represents the depths of beauty in the shadows of our souls.

Bodegas Alma Negra is located in Mendoza, Argentina.
