Winemaker's Notes:

Fine aromas of sour cherry and cherry stand out from abackground of smoked spices. In the mouth, thecomplexity of French and American oak, and a firm andbalanced structure, join together to produce a wine trueto the varietal character of the grape. The same cherryflavors first discovered in the nose are found on thepalate, and linger through the long, pleasing finish.

About Elsa Bianchi:

Elsa Bianchi was founded by Bodega Valentin Bianchi. Bodega Valentin Bianchi is one of the oldest and most important wineries in South America. It is a symbol of tradition, nobility and quality in Argentine wines. Started in 1928 by Don Valentin Bianchi, they have won world attention and acclaim since 1934 starting with the "Maximum Quality" honor in Mendoza. On August 12, 1968, Don Valentin Bianchi passed away. However, the tradition that he firmly established continues to live on in his successors.

Today, Valentin Eduardo Bianchi and Ricardo Stradella Bianchi have brought the winery into the modern era. Valentin is the President of the winery while Ricardo is the Chief Financial Officer. Recently, they enlisted the aid of California winemaker, Robert Pepi. He has helped them refine some of their techniques and the new wines show the style that this new breed of management exemplifies. Pepi believes that Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon are the future of this winery.
