James Suckling - "I like the aromas of blackberry, bark, mushroom and coffee bean. Full body, silky tannins and a juicy finish. Drink now."
Wine Spectator - "A suave and refined style, with lilting spice and sandalwood notes to the flavors of dried raspberry, red currant and rose hip. Savory midpalate, with a dried beef note on the well-structured finish."
This was the first C.D.O. certified Argentine wine, and later on it became the archetype of the Luján de Cuyo spirit. It has been made every year since 1991, and has always qualified for the category. The wines with the Luján de Cuyo Controlled Denomination of Origin (C.D.O.) must bear the C.D.O. certification seal and sticker. Controlled Denomination of Origin (C.D.O.) is the name that identifies the products originated in a region, which have singular qualities that are the unique result of the geographical region from which they come, including the natural and human factors involved in their production.
