Wine Details

Wine Description

(2011 Vintage) Ruby-red wine, with good aromatic intensity, and touches of pepper and roasted red pepper, with some paprika or dry pepper, followed by a sweetness given by the red and black fruits. The vanilla aroma blends with the wooden notes and are fully integrated ageing in French oak barrels. A great structure in the mouth is a key feature of this year's vintage. Tannins are well condensed with anthocyanins, adding red hues, and resulting in a roundness and softness in which the typical structure of the Cabernet prevails. Valle de Uco produces this varietal with notable structure, which makes it suitable for long-term storage. The body of this wine makes it an ideal match for semi-hard or aged cheeses, or important and complex dishes of spiced red meat or pastas. Highly recommended: decant for 20 to 30 minutes at 16°C (61°F) before drinking.
