Region: Mendoza, Argentina

Varietal: 65% Malbec, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Petit Verdot

Tasting notes: A red with dark berry, forest floor and currants. Such purity. Concentrated and huge, but well balanced, it offers high-volume berry, herb, chocolate and spice flavors—the lynchpins of excellent wines. Spicy, long and elegant on the finish, this is the real deal.

Producer: Mendel Winery embodies the union of Roberto de la Mota - one of Argentina's most respected and experienced winemakers - with a nearly century-old Argentine family, whose sole objective is to produce wine of unquestionable, superior quality that express the character of their very old Malbec and Cabernet vineyards in Lujan de Cuyo, Mendoza, Argentina. Mendel is the first name of the owner's father, a man who came to Argentina with nothing and ended up a successful businessman in different industries. He was also a man that loved the finest things that life had to offer, particularly wine. His daughter, Anabelle, honors her father by seeking perfection in her and Roberto's wines with his name on the label.

Vineyard and Winemaking: The vineyards are located in Mayor Drummond, Perdriel (Lujan de Cuyo) and Altamira (Uco Valley). These are old vineyards, with the average age of the vines exceeding 50 years and some dating back to 1928. The wine was aged for 16 months in 100% new French Taransaud oak.
