Winemaker Notes

Intense and brilliant color, with violet reflections. The nose is perceived typicality of Malbec: ripe red fruit and floral aromas. The palate entry denotes a full, soft and lush with sweet tannins and very present, has a final round with notes of cherries, sour cherries and blackberries.

Decanter
A wonderful velvet texture with great purity. Dense bramble fruit with hints of violets. Good length and lovely juiciness, and with a firm, fine tannic structure. (JA)

Very expressive with lovely floral notes of roses, plus black pepper. Lovely mouthfeel and purity. The purest of Malbec expression. (PC)

Nice, pure expression of Malbec. Clean fruit, violets and strawberries. A great wine to understand Malbec in general and Vista Flores Malbec in particular. Pure and drinkable. (PT)

Antucura, , South America
Antucura
Antucura means the ancient language of the Pehuenches - the first inhabitants of the area - "Stone of the Sun." We chose this name for our winery and lodge at Vista Flores because the vineyards that give the birth to our beloved wines grow here naturally, among stones and rocks. This special blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot was elaborated with both care and passion. It aged in new French oak barrels for twelve months before bottling, then stored until ready for release.

Our winery mingles with the terroir, the ancient viticultural traditions and the new vinification technologies. Born to be the matrix of super premium and ultra premium wines, our winery counts with top quality controls and extra care. Through a special gravity flow system the grapes are gently pressed and therefore wines are nurtured in unparalleled conditions.

Napa Valley

Cabernet Sauvignon

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
