    Winemaker Notes

    The grapes come primarily from Valentin Bianchi's Doña Elsa Estate situated in Rama Caíida, San Rafael, Mendoza, around 2,493 feet above sea level. One of the coolest areas in San Rafael, the soil in Rama Caída is of sandy calcareous composition and alluvial origins. Picked by hand, the grapes are crushed, fermented at controlled temperatures in stainless steel tanks. There is minimal oak aging(no more than six months)in an effort to keep fruit fresh, lively and prominent.

    Classic Cabernet aromas of black pepper, cedar, slight herbal and berry notes manifest themselves in the nose. This is a medium-full bodied wine with a soft balanced mouth feel and flavors that are similar to the aromas, which lead to a pleasing soft berry-vanillan finish.

    Elsa Cabernet Sauvignon is a perfect accompaniment to a wide variety hearty foods such as red meats and pasta with marinara.

    Elsa Bianchi, , South America
    Elsa Bianchi
    Elsa Bianchi was founded by Bodega Valentin Bianchi. Bodega Valentin Bianchi is one of the oldest and most important wineries in South America. It is a symbol of tradition, nobility and quality in Argentine wines. Started in 1928 by Don Valentin Bianchi, they have won world attention and acclaim since 1934 starting with the "Maximum Quality" honor in Mendoza. On August 12, 1968, Don Valentin Bianchi passed away. However, the tradition that he firmly established continues to live on in his successors.

    Today, Valentin Eduardo Bianchi and Ricardo Stradella Bianchi have brought the winery into the modern era. Valentin is the President of the winery while Ricardo is the Chief Financial Officer. Recently, they enlisted the aid of California winemaker, Robert Pepi. He has helped them refine some of their techniques and the new wines show the style that this new breed of management exemplifies. Pepi believes that Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon are the future of this winery.

    Napa Valley

    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.
