About the Wine

Roughly half of Mendoza's population is of Spanish descent, and over the years a number of Tempranillo vines have been planted in the region. This bottling, from an heirloom quality parral style vineyard in Altamira, is packed with lush cherry and raspberry fruit. A long growing season, very cold nights and low yields helped create a wine that is extremely concentrated, parral vineyard. 70 year old vines.
