Caligiore Bonarda Reserve 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The origin of Bonarda in Argentina is a subject of disagreement, some say it hails from Italy & others feel it is the Charbono grape from California... what ever the case, it has found its home in Mendoza & is the second most planted red grape in Argentina. Organically grown at high elevations in the foothills of the Andes, this wine shows power with elegance & light tannins. Somewhere between a fruity Merlot and a spicy Red Zin, this red wine is packed full of flavor!

This wine combines hearty blueberry and cherry with hints of fig and milk chocolate. It feels sweet, but crisp, and has a long, subtle finish with smooth well integrated tannins. Chh, Chhh, Chhh - Cherry Cola!
