2016 Callia Alta Cabernet Sauvignon

$9.00

As you pour a glass of Callia, it’s likely you’ll feel compelled to indulge in some much needed “me” time. This robust Cabernet Sauvignon from the San Juan region of Argentina offers a palatable wine for easy drinking. An intense red color, expressive fruit notes are interwoven among hints of spice and cocoa, leading into a slightly sweet finish balanced by mild tannins.


ABV % = 13.5

Details

San Juan

San Juan is located south of Mendoza in Argentina. This area is also known as the Pedernal Valley, and is one of the most desolate places to grow grapes. The soils are poor and rocky, comprised of some volcanic matter, and there is hardly any water aside from some runoff from the Andes Mountains. The main grape here is Malbec. It makes wines of concentration, power, bold fruit, and an amazing flinty earthiness. The Valle de Pedernal only has a few growers, but what is coming out of this tiny region is certainly catching attention on the world stage.
