Winemaker's Notes:

Ruby color with purple hues of good intensity. Complex aromas of ripe fruits as cherries, black cherries and plums. Vanilla, leather, tobacco and spices include black pepper and paprika. Full-bodied, sweet tannins, rich red wine with good balance and complexity. Long lingering finish.
My Notes:

About Santa Julia:

At the foot of the Andes Mountains, in the vast desert province of Mendoza sits Familia Zuccardi, Argentina's largest family-owned winery and one of the leading exporters of Argentine wines. In the U.S., three lines of Familia Zuccardi wines are available: Santa Julia, Familia Zuccardi "Q" and Vida Organica.

For almost 40 years, Familia Zuccardi has produced wines of exceptional quality and value from the soils of Maipu and Santa Rosa. Every wine at Familia Zuccardi is from estate grown, hand picked fruit and is estate produced. In total, there are nearly 1200 acres of noble grapes under cultivation.
