Winemaker's Notes:

The color is a dark violet and brilliant purple. On the nose there is good complexity in teh nose and typical Malbec aromas of ripe fruits such as figs, plums, blackberries and marmalades. There are also notes of vanillam tobacco, coffee and chocolate. On the palate it is a full bodied red wine with sweet tannins, good structure 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.
