Winemaker's Notes:

An intense red violet color. On the nose, bright red fruit, plums and raspberries. On the palate, fruity, with round, firm tannins.

Highly recommended with red meats, cheeses made from cow milk and pastas with light sauces.

My Notes:

About Ruta 22:

RN 22 or Ruta Nacional 22 is the Argentinean National Highway that connects the provinces of Buenos Aires, La Pampa, Rio Negro and Neuquen along its 685 km. The highway leads to Dos Andes in Rio Negro and Neuquen, Argentina, finishing in a paradise of endless vineyards.

The geography surrounding Ruta 22 is one of plateaus, mountains and of extreme weather. This area is mainly characterized by a landscape of lakes, mountains and forests. Ruta 22 captures the essence of Patagonia, transporting people to a barren and rugged landscape; a landscape that is a fertile and potent foundation for amazing possibilities; and one that inspires adventure, sincerity and fearlessness.
