Winemaker's Notes:

Purplish red color. On the nose, it displays aromas reminiscent of plums and blackberries with a hint of vanilla granted by its oak aging. In the mouth, it is a fruity wine with very good structure and silky tannins.

It is an ideal wine to match grilled or roast red meat, pasta with red sauces and semi hard cheeses.

My Notes:

About Bodegas Salentein:

These Estate wines come from the vineyards at La Pampa Estate, El Portillo Estate and San Pablo Estate, in the Upper Valley of the Uco, part of the Tupungato district, 120km south of Mendoza, nestling beneath the Andes. The vineyards are planted at between 1050 and 1500 metres above sea level in ideal micro climates, which produce perfect ripening conditions for the grapes.
