    (2006 Vintage) If you're already familiar with Argentine Bonarda, this wine will make you feel as though you've landed on another planet. It comes from 30-year-old vines planted in two areas within Mendoza; one in the cool heights of Uco Valley, and the other toward the hot plains of the east, in Rivadavia. The combination results in a massive red with a roasted black fruit aroma that almost takes you to the Rhone, its firm, tense tannins and vibrant acidity providing a solid structure that suggests a brilliant future. A hedonistic pleasure, and a true steal for the price.

    (2010 Vintage) The 2007 Bonarda is 100% varietal aged in stainless steel. Purple-colored and very fragrant, it offers up scents of strawberry and raspberry. This is followed by a medium-bodied, lively wine with pleasant acidity and ample ripe fruit. It would be a superb match with a pulled pork sandwich.
