2012 Locations AR2 Argentina
At the foot of the Andes Mountains in Mendoza, Argentina lies a vineyard site ideally suited for our first wine made in the Southern Hemisphere. Unlike some growing regions in the area that are flood irrigated, Locations AR2 was harvested from drip system blocks on estate land. Extremely well drained and alluvial in profile, the yields are low and the berries are small. Malbec along with Cabernet Sauvignon and Tannat, aged in new French oak, form the composition. For years, our friends have spoken highly about the area despite the twenty-six hour travel time to get there. Now we know why and eagerly look forward to the next harvest. Ruby red in complexion, the wine bursts with aromas of cassis, lavender, blueberry, and a subtle hint of cedar box. In the glass, it opens to reveal a dense mix of dark fruit flavors, currant, and crushed raspberry complimented with a nice floral lift. Tannins with soft definition provide for a pleasing and weighty finish.
