Wine Description

Doña Paula Estate Black Edition Red Blend is characterized by its intense black purple color. On the nose, its aromas of plum, spices and red pepper stand out while delicate notes of mint can also be perceived. In the mouth, it is a very harmonious and balanced wine, with round tannins and a long finish.

This balanced blend has its origin in our vineyards from Ugarteche, Lujan de Cuyo. The yield is between 7 to 9 tonnes per hectare. These grapevines are drip irrigated and espalier trained. This estate is located at 1,050 meters above sea level and the climate in this area typically presents warm days and cool nights, with an average temperature variation of 14°C and an average annual rainfall of 200 mm. At Dona Paula, our vineyards have always been managed using sustainable agriculture practices.

Tasting Note

Flavorful. Great dryness, fruit, and oak.....unbalanced though. Not sure the professional score was appropriate but unbelievable for the price.
