Wine Review: This midnight purple colored Argentinian blend is a big boy wine. That said, it is drinking very nice right now. It opens with a mild blueberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and rich. The flavor profile is a stewed plum with notes of ripe blackberry and oak. I also detect hints of fig, black pepper and a touch of black olive at the very end. The finish is dry and its tannins are sticky, but reasonably managed. I am sure this wine was held back to allow for the tannins to settle a bit. This wine still needs a fatty meal. I would pair with a well-marbled Cowboy ribeye. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Aduentus Classic is a Bordeaux-style blend whose gorgeous color - a rich garnet with glints of inky black. It displays ripe berry fruit flavors with notes of white chocolate, black olives, and white pepper provide plenty of mouth filling satisfaction. Tannins are robust yet smooth, adding to the impression of roundness and complex elegance.

Organic status: not organic

Your comments on this wine:





Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
