$12 Retail

Grapes for this velvety wine were sourced from Mendoza's Uco Valley vineyards high on the eastern slopes near the base of the Andes Mountains, where the grapes develop balanced sugars and natural acidity while ripening. In the glass, it exudes aromas of violets, black cherry, blackberry, plum and hints of oak. On the palate, the complex wine tastes of ripened dark fruit, wild berries and spice notes with silky tannins on the lingering finish. For best results, decant an hour before serving. Drink it with grilled or roasted meats, charcuterie, wild game, barbecue, meaty casseroles, pasta with tomato sauce, aged cheeses and other hearty fare. Buy it at: Many Rouses locations. Drink it at: The Cellar and Rouses in Uptown.
