Winemaker Notes

Red cherry and strawberry fruit aromas. As it opens up, a little black fruit combined with a spicy character of black pepper and cinnamon. Medium acidity with horizontal mouth. 

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 92
James Suckling

Spiced red-cherry aromas, as well as a dried-rose perfume and gently earthy notes. The palate is very elegantly cast with crisp tannin and a swathe of fresh baking spices, across dry red-cherries.

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2018 Grand Mère Pinot Noir was produced from vines in Villa Bastías in Tupungato and matured in second and third use French barriques for 18 months. It's floral, expressive and fresh, following the style of the 2016 but somehow riper than the 2019 I also tasted next to it. All wines show great balance, freshness and nuance. 8,184 bottles produced. It was bottled in December 2019.

Uco Valley Wine

Mendoza, Argentina

View all products

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.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
