    Winemaker Notes

    Red color with violet hues. Aromas of red ripe peppers, black pepper and red fruits. Aromas with tobacco and chocolate notes granted by its aging in oak barrels. Balanced, full bodied with soft tannins.

    Andeluna, Uco Valley, Mendoza, Argentina
    Image of winery
    Andeluna Cellars is a winery and vineyard rich with history and romance –just like the country it calls home. This beautiful place is the inspiration for the name Andeluna, which was chosen to symbolize the romance and heritage of the Argentine moon illuminating the magnificent Andes Mountains that frame the Uco Valley. The combination of great vineyards growing classic varietals, with world-class winemaking, creates flavors and wines that cannot be found anywhere else.

    Premium quality wine starts with premium quality grapes, and this is the essence of Andeluna. In the late 19th Century, many Italians immigrated to Argentina seeking opportunities that the rich and beautiful land provided. Searching for nothing less than the perfect place to make the world's best wine, they came to Mendoza and planted vineyards that began the heritage of Argentina's winemaking industry.

    For generations, Argentina has grown and perfected the traditional grape varieties of the Old World – Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Chardonnay. But the feet of Andeluna don't rest in the soil of the Old World. Instead, they are planted firmly in the New World in a stunning series of vineyards that climb up the foothills of the Andes.

    Uco Valley

    View all wine

    With a winning combination of cool weather, high elevation and well-draining alluvial soils, it is no surprise that Mendoza’s Uco Valley is one of the most exciting up-and-coming wine regions in Argentina. Healthy, easy-to-manage vines produce low yields of high-quality fruit, which in turn create flavorful, full-bodied wines with generous acidity.

    This is the source of some of the best Malbec in Mendoza, which can range from value-priced to ultra-premium. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Chardonnay also perform well here.

    Cabernet Sauvignon

    View all wine

    A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe. Inherently high in tannins and acidity, the best bottlings of Cabernet can age beautifully, with the ability to last fifty years or more. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in temperate climates like Bordeaux's Medoc region and forms the base of the Medoc reds, which are typically mostly Cabernet with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. (Enjoying a great deal of success in various regions around the world, this blend is now globally referred to as a Bordeaux Blend.) Cabernet Sauvignon from the Napa Valley is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines.

    In the Glass

    High in color, tannin and extract, Cabernet Sauvignon expresses notes of blackberry, cassis, plum, currant, spice and tobacco. In Bordeaux and elsewhere in the Old World you'll find the more earthy, tannic side of Cabernet, where it is typically blended to soften tannins and add complexity. In warmer regions like California Washington, Argentina, Chile and Australia, you can typically expect more ripe fruit flavors upfront.

    Perfect Pairings

    Cabernet Sauvignon is right at home with rich, intense meat dishes—beef, lamb and venison, in particular—where its opulent fruit and decisive tannins make an equal match to the dense protein of the meat. With a mature Cabernet, opt for tender, slow-cooked meat dishes.

    Sommelier Secrets

    Despite the modern importance and ubiquity of Cabernet Sauvignon, it is actually a relatively young variety. In 1997, DNA profiling revealed the grape to be a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc which took place in 17th century southwestern France.
