Winemaker Notes

This Cabernet Sauvignon was grown in our Tupungato vineyard in the Valle de Uco zone in Mendoza. At an elevation of 3,600 feet, it is a highly coveted viticulture area of Argentina due to its exceptional climate and soil characteristics. This vineyard receives the cold airflow that descends from the Andes Mountains, significantly cooling the grapes after exposure to warm, sunny days. This temperature differential contributes to the wine's intense color and aromatics.

The wine was finished in new French oak barrels for six months to obtain a balanced communion between fruit and oak notes. The result is a complex yet very elegant wine, with plenty of fruit accents, sweet and ripe tannins, intriguing spice notes, and a long, harmonious and pleasant finish.

Aleph, South America
Our name is inspired by a short story by the Argentinean writer Jorge Luis Borges. The Aleph is a point where once you see it, you’ve seen the entire universe simultaneously. The sensation described by Borges of the infinite being visible all at one point is the feeling we have each time we savor this wine. Aleph is also the first letter of the Sacred Language.

The label fe atures a minimalist design, an original color and an imagination- capturing image with a representative icon.

With vineyards tretching along the eastern side of the Andes Mountains from Patagonia in the south to Salta in the north, Argentina is one of the world’s largest and most dynamic wine producing countries—and most important in South America.

Since the late 20th century vineyard investments, improved winery technology and a commitment to innovation have all contributed to the country’s burgeoning image as a producer of great wines at all price points. The climate here is diverse but generally continental and agreeable, with hot, dry summers and cold snowy winters—a positive, as snow melt from the Andes Mountains is used heavily to irrigate vineyards. Grapes very rarely have any difficulty achieving full ripeness.

Argentina’s famous Mendoza region, responsible for more than 70% of Argentina’s wine production, is further divided into several sub-regions, with Luján de Cuyo and the Uco Valley most noteworthy. Red wines dominate here, especially Malbec, the country’s star variety, while Chardonnay is the most successful white.

The province of San Juan is best known for blends of Bonarda and Syrah. Torrontés is a specialty of the La Rioja and Salta regions, the latter of which is also responsible for excellent Malbecs grown at very high elevation.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
