Winemaker's Notes:

Displays deep red color with an attractive nose that recalls plums and strawberry aromas mingled with roasted pepper notes and toasty hints of integrated oak. In the mouth, it displays a vibrant composition of fresh fruit and sweet spices. In order to protect the purity of the fruit, this wine was subject to minimal handling prior to bottling.

Blend: 57% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Franc, 7% Carmenere, 4% Syrah, 1% Petit Verdot

My Notes:

About Vina Pargua:

Pargua winemaker Jean Pascal Lacaze believes that wine is only as good as the grapes from which it is made. At his Maipo Valley vineyard, Lacaze grows grapes sustainably and organically, uses the best fruit, ages the wine in individually selected barrels, and blends the juice at just the right time.

The label artwork was created by renowned Chilean artist Benjamin Lira, who took his inspiration from the word Pargua, meaning "full moon" in the Mapuche language. Like the artwork, which will change with every vintage, Pargua’s wines are vibrant, expressive, and harmonious.
