Varietal Composition 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot.

Harvest: April 4 to 28; hand-harvested.

Appellation: Luján de Cuyo and Maipú vineyards from 2933 feet to 3514

feet average elevation.

Climate; Semi-desert.

Growing Season:  It was a dry winter with a few precipitations. On July 14th  there was an intense Zonda wind which made temperatures reach 30 degrees during the day. At the beginning of  September there was a frost in Gualtallary, Tupungato, which damaged shoots and clusters, especially in Chardonnay. On November 27th there was a strong hail storm that affected many of the unprotected vineyards, even in some cases

damaging their structure. Then, during the summer, conditions became stable allowing a very good ripening of the fruit. The harvest started on February 29th with Chardonnay variety, which presented a very good ripening and concentration. Showing similar characteristics, red varieties, presented intense colors, a very good structure and concentration in mouth. The red varieties’ harvest ended on April 28th with Cobos Malbec.

Yield: 2,53 to 4.46 tons per acre.

Primary Fermentation Fermented with selected and native yeasts in 8 and 18 ton

closed-top stainless steel tanks.

Maceration2-3 day cold soak; 16 days total maceration.

Secondary Fermentation Native malolactic fermentation in barrel; 4 months to completion.

Barrel Aging: 8 months in French and American oak barrels, 20% new.

Bottling February 2013, unfined

Tasting Notes: This bright deep-red wine has a nose of sweet red berries and

menthol. It tastes of berries, white pepper, and cassis. Its strong

acidity and round tannins give this wine a complex highly

concentrated structure.
