Winemaker's Notes:

This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon was made with Organically grown grapes from Maipu Vineyard, Mendoza. The ruby color has purple hues of good intensity. Complex aromas of ripe fruits such as cherries, black cherries and plums along with vanilla, leather, tobacco and spices like black pepper and paprika. Full-bodied, sweet tannins, rich red wine with good balance and complexity and a long finish.

About Santa Julia:

Near the town of Mendoza, in the Andean foothills, sits Bodega Santa Julia. Founded and still run by the Zuccardi family, the winery has carried the banner of fine Argentine winemaking for three generations. Today, Sebastian Zuccardi, praised as a “terroir-ist” by Wine Advocate, drives the trend toward single-vineyard winemaking. He understands the importance of letting the land, the mountain water, the terroir, do the talking. His creation, Santa Julia Magna, blends grapes from three distinct Mendozan vineyards: bonarda grapes from the “eastern oasis” Santa Rosa vineyard; malbec from the higher elevation Agrelo vineyard; and cabernet sauvignon grapes from the sandy agglomerated soil of La Consulta vineyard.
