Winemaker Notes

La Violeta is a concentrated color, with intense, bright tones of ruby and purple. On the nose, earthy aromas, black fruits, violets, and mint. On the palate, there coffee, dark chocolate, blackberry and licorice - a complex wine.

Critical Acclaim

RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2008 La Violeta is the sophomore release of their flagship pure Malbec raised in the same way as La Violette in Pomerol and is bridled with 15.5% alcohol. It has a heady, opulent bouquet that, dare I say, reminds me of its Pomerol counterpart in its youth. It offers a smorgasbord of ripe red cherries, creme de cassis, vanilla and blueberry jam all wrapped up in creamy new oak. The palate is full-bodied with plush velvety tannins and low acidity. Everything here is beautifully intermarried with new oak melted into the texture. It is decadent and sumptuous and will appeal to hedonists and classicists alike. Drink now-2016+.

Bodega Monteviejo, Uco Valley, Mendoza, Argentina
Image of winery
Bodega Monteviejo is owned and operated by Chateau Le Gay, of Pomerol. The wines made at this very special property in Argentina are treated with the same dedication and care as those produced back home in Bordeaux. The vineyards, over 100 hectares, are located in the commune of Tunuyan, just 80km south of the city of Mendoza. The goal here is to create wines that can compete with the world's best. This traditional method of agriculture is a key aspect of what has created Argentina's worldwide reputation for truly world-class wine.

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.

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.
