Winemaker Notes

This all estate, 100% hand harvested Cabernet Sauvignon is from a single vineyard in Cafayate. The nose shows blueberry and blackberry pie coated with powdered vanilla sugar and fig. The palate is nicely balanced with dark fruit and hints of leather and tobacco.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 Laborum Cabernet Sauvignon is from the single vineyard mentioned on the label, Finca Río Seco (dry river), and shows good varietal typicity and integrated oak. I sense a change in the profile of the wines, with a lot less oak than in the past. It's nicely textured with the fine varietal tannins.

El Porvenir de Cafayate Winery Video
El Porvenir de Cafayate is a small, family owned winery located in Cafayate (North West of Argentina), in the province of Salta - a 3 hour drive from the town of Salta, through a mountainous area known as Quebrada de Cafayate. The Romero family bought the property in 2000. They built their house in the middle of an old vineyard called Finca El Retiro and bought and planted more land through the years. The family’s vineyards are situated at an incredible 5,740 feet above sea level, in a highly unique and privileged grape growing region. Like Mendoza, Cafayate benefits from a large day-to-night temperature fluctuation and extremely low rainfall and humidity. Desert climate and poor soil favor the production of high quality grapes. The winery is run by Lucia Romero-Marcuzzi, with winemaker Mariano Quiroga Adamo (who joined her in 2010), agronomist Santiago Bugallo and wine consultant Paul Hobbs. Her team is dedicated to crafting small quantities of exceptional wines with an annual production limited to approximately 17,000 cases. Like all great winemakers, the family believes that quality begins in the vineyards, and so maintains fanatical control and care throughout the process, from planting to manual harvest. This care continues in the winery, which is gravity-flow, and through the wine’s aging in French and American oak barrels. The result is some of the highest quality wine coming out of Argentina today.

Cafayate Valley Wine

Salta, Argentina

Home to some of Argentina’s best Torrontes, the Cafayate Valley’s rugged, high-altitude vineyards are part of the Calchaquies Valley in northwestern Argentina. Here, this Argentine white variety is able to achieve optimal ripeness while maintaining a higher than average acidity; its wines are typically full-bodied, dry to off-dry and alluringly aromatic.

In the Cafayate Valley, summers are warm and while most rainfall happens in these months, it isn’t enough to supply to the vineyards with enough water for the entire year. Snowmelt provides a fresh water source for irrigation in these arid and extreme conditionss.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
