Winemaker Notes

Intense red violet color. On the nose, it has a character of dark red fruits and a hint of plum. On the palate, the wine is fruity and smooth with fresh acidity and firm, but approachable tannins.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 87
Wine Spectator

Elegant yet focused, with a solid core of raspberry and crushed plum fruit framed by grilled herbs, spice and a fine minerality that carries the stony finish. An all-season red.

WE 87
Wine Enthusiast

Stout and dense from the beginning, with blackberry and violet aromas. Despite being a bold and dark Malbec, this is fresh and composed, with sweet blackberry and cassis flavors. Good on the finish, with candied fruit and caramel sweetness.

Ruta 22, , South America
Ruta 22
RN 22 or Ruta Nacional 22 is the Argentinean National Highway that connects the provinces of Buenos Aires, La Pampa, Rio Negro and Neuquen along its 685 km. The highway leads to Dos Andes in Rio Negro and Neuquen, Argentina, finishing in a paradise of endless vineyards.

The geography surrounding Ruta 22 is one of plateaus, mountains and of extreme weather. This area is mainly characterized by a landscape of lakes, mountains and forests. Ruta 22 captures the essence of Patagonia, transporting people to a barren and rugged landscape; a landscape that is a fertile and potent foundation for amazing possibilities; and one that inspires adventure, sincerity and fearlessness.

A large and diverse wine region in northeastern Italy, the Veneto is home to a vast array of different styles of wine. With no defining regional characteristics, it can be a bit confusing to the general consumer to parse through its many subzones, but the patient wine lover will find many treasures to be discovered here, typically at wallet-friendly prices. Red and white wines are produced here, with more emphasis on the latter, as well as the ultra-popular sparkling wine Prosecco. The region is sheltered from harsh northern European winters by the Alps, which form its northern border, but the climate is still relatively cool, making the Veneto ideal for white wine production.

Much of Italy’s Pinot Grigio hails from the Veneto, where it can range from neutral and inoffensive to crisp and refreshing. Soave, made primarily from the Garganega grape, has a reputation for producing relatively ordinary, bulk wines, but can be very elegant when yields are carefully monitored, with aromas of lemon, almond, and white flowers. Valpolicella is the region’s best-known red wine, with juicy, tart red cherry flavors derived from the Corvina grape. Recioto and Amarone wines made from dried grapes are a regional specialty and can be very intense, heady, and cerebral.
