Mendoza-grown Malbec leads our 2019 Red Blend, providing a foundation brimming with layers of dark plum. Bonarda imparts notes of juicy dark cherries to the blend while Cabernet Sauvignon brings layers of bold dark fruit. Syrah offers finishing touches of blackberry and black pepper while light oak gives our Red Blend a rich mouthfeel and approachable wine. Tucked under the massive shoulders of the Andes Mountains in west central Argentina, the province of Mendoza is renowned for housing some of the best winegrowing regions of Argentina. The character of Mendoza wines is forged in high altitude desert vineyards irrigated by mineral rich snowmelt from glaciers and snowfields. Altitudes range from 1,000 feet to around 5,000 feet, where the foothills rise steeply toward the Andes’ peaks. High altitude means cool temperatures and clear air, and clear air means more sunlight for building flavor in the grapes, helping to make Mendoza the source of Argentina’s well-earned reputation for top quality, unique wines.
