Winemaker's Notes

The grapes come primarily from Valentin Bianchi's Doña Elsa Estate of 345 acres, situated in Rama Caída, San Rafael, Mendoza, around 2,493 feet above sea level. One of the coolest areas in San Rafael, the soil in Rama Caída is of sandy calcareous composition and alluvial origins Picked by hand, the grapes go though the classical crushing and fermentation. There is minimal oak aging (no more than six months) in an effort to keep fruit fresh, lively and prominent.

Fine aromas of raspberry and cherry stand out from a background of smoked spices. In the mouth, the richness and complexity of French oak, and a firm and balanced structure, join together to produce a wine true to the varietal character of the grape. The same cherry flavors first discovered in the nose are found on the palate and linger through the long pleasing finish. 100% Syrah

This wine is especially compatible with lamb, smoked meats and hearty mushroom sauces.
