The Wine Advocate rating: 91 points
PRICE ON 7/28/2014: $17.79

Winemaker's Notes:

This quaffable, moderately priced "sequel" to Pargua's limited-production wine is made with a bright blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 15% Carmenère, 15% Syrah, and 8% Cabernet Franc. It offers a juicy texture supported by integrated tannins and a generous finish of wild berries, dried fruit, and sweet spice. An outstanding companion to grilled meats, eggplant, Moroccan food and spicy sauces. Less than 3,000 cases produced.

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.
