Winemaker Notes

Dark purple color. Forward nose of toasty plums, black cherry, and lilac flowers. On the palate the wine is rich and full, with layers of berry flavors and a hint of bittersweet chocolate. Finishes soft with balancing acidity.

Ca' de Calle, (Calle's Place), is named in honor of the lady that shared our vision and helped turn it into reality. In 2001, we sought to recondition a historic winery in the heart of Mendoza's acclaimed wine district, Luján de Cuyo. This is a small-lot, gravity flow, red wine production studio where we strive to achieve perfection with every successive year. This is just our fourth effort at a Reserva wine and is a delicious blend of the best wines under our roof.

70% Malbec, 16% Tempranillo, 12% Syrah, 2% Petit Verdot

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Even better is the 2010 Ca de Calle Reserva that is composed of 70% Malbec, 16% Tempranillo, with the balance Syrah and Petit Verdot. It displays more obvious oak than the 2009 as well as a bit more structure and complexity. Spicy, peppery black fruits, plenty of volume, and excellent concentration make this an outstanding value that is likely to evolve for 1-2 years. It offers a drinking window extending from 2013 to 2018.

Argentina

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.

Other Red Blends

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a fruity and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is naturally high in acidity and tannins. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
