Winemaker's Notes:

An elegant, complex wine with a deep ruby red color. The nose shows aromas of red fruits with light notes of chocolate orange rind. The mouth feel is full and well structured, with sweet spice and vanilla notes from French oak aging and soft, finely grained tannins with excellent length.
My Notes:

About Casarena:

Casarena vineyards is limited to produced concentrated grapes with an expression of their terroir. The fermentations are cool with extended macerations which add layers of flavors and complex aromas. Our Wine Making team is headed by Michel Rolland.

Our vineyards are located in Lujan de Cuyo, Mendoza, Argentina. This is an area where we find vineyards of great prestige, at 33º South latitude, with a continental climate and an annual rainfall average of 200/300 mm. In summer, the temperature difference between day and night is around 24º. All theses features gather together unbeatable height, climate and soil conditions to cultivate premium vineyards.
