De Martino Red Blend Cabernet Sauvignon-Malbec Organic 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

De Martino’s organic wines are a true reflection of the ability of Chile’s terrior to produce high-quality wines, while maintaining complete respect for the environment. A percentage of the proceeds from every bottle sold goes to CODEFF, a local charity that preserves and conserves Chile’s beautiful countryside. Hand-harvested at the end of April, the grapes were carefully selected via use of a sorting table upon arriving at the winery. They immediately underwent a cold-soak for 4-7 days in stainless steel tanks at 8-10°C. Fermentation then took place over a 9-day period at 26-28°C. The wine was left in contact with the skins for 28 days with periodic pump-overs and aeration before being transferred to French oak barriques of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd use for 14 months. Full malolactic fermentation occurred. The wine was filtered and refrigerated then bottled and aged for a year before release.

San Martiño Winery & Vineyards opened its doors in the spring of 2004. We are a small family-owned winery specializing in handcrafted wines using modern techniques but with a traditional “soul” borne in the fertile lands of northwestern Spain. The village of San Martiño, (see picture below), located in the mountains of the Galician region, has been making traditional wines for hundreds of years. It was at the village of San Martiño that our love and knowledge of wine and wine making techniques started. Through years of watching and helping our family in the vineyard we came to appreciate the special relationship between people, their land and the food they grow. Our Texas winery was created by borrowing from the traditions of the San Martiño village and its people, the tenacity and resolution of our family and learned modern wine-making techniques. Our heritage is rich and although we are not Texas largest winery, we aim to be the best!. Here you can watch us grow and participate with us as we travel together in this adventure because we know that without you we are not. So come by and visit with us while relaxing with a glass or bottle of one of our wines. Bring a picnic and enjoy a break from the rat race. Read less

Tasting Notes:

Elegant floral notes lended from the Malbec combine with aromas of tobacco and spice typical of Cabernet. They are framed by vanilla notes contributed by the oak aging. On the palate, the acidity and freshness are prominent but are balanced by soft, round tannins.
