Ruta 22 Malbec, Patagonia Argentina, 2010

Red wine. Exploring South America is one of our passions. Not content to continue growing grapes in the same regions we always have, we set out more than two decades ago to explore new lands, curious to see how different soils and climates would affect our favorite wine varieties. We found that Patagonia's cool, dry climate, large temperature variations and complex soils were perfect for Malbec, producing a deep ruby-colored wine, with rich, smooth blackberry flavors and vanilla aromas. Our wines from Patagonia are named Ruta 22 after the main route used to travel from East to West through Argentina. Experience wines like those from nowhere else. 100% Malbec from the Neuquien Valley. 14.5% alc by vol. Product of Argentina.
