If you love Malbec and Syrah, you’ll love this wonderful cuvee of two grapes. Violet colored, med.-bodied wine with aromas of vanilla, oak, and black fruit. Upfront you’ll experience light, dusty tannins and wild blackberries. Layers of loam and tobacco towards the finish. In 2005, the owner of renowned Bordeaux chateaus decided to leave France in search of new horizons. They finally found an ideal place in Uco Valley, to the south of the city of Mendoza. In their modern facility, wines are crafted carefully under the guidance of Michel Roland (a rock star winemaker) utilizing winemaking techniques of both century-old classic and cutting-edge modern.
Food Pairing: BBQ, Smoked meats, charcuterie, smoked cheese.
