Luna Benegas Cabernet Sauvignon Argentina 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Color: It is very clean and brilliant at sight. When moved, fine tears are formed. Tears move somehow slow at first, but then slide naturally. Red-purple color. The purple hints show it is a young wine. Aroma: The first nose is very pleasant with mineral and floral notes combined together with red fruits. A very characteristic Pepper arises then and, after a while, sweet hints can be discovered as well. Taste: It is very pleasant and refreshing in the mouth. Once again red fruits appear and sweet tannins can be discovered. It has a medium-long final, inviting for more. It combines perfectly with cheese such as gouda or cheddar and it is perfect for argentine beef.

It is located in the Luján de Cuyo region, carril Ardoz (off route 60), 300 meters from its intersection with the south access to Mendoza, and at 5 kilometers from Finca Libertad. This old winery belonged to the family of Gladys Alurralde Norton, who was the mother of Federico J. Benegas Lynch. Agustín Alvarez, Governor of the Province of Mendoza in those years, finished the construction in 1901. It is one of the few historic relics that remain from the old Mendoza of the end of the XIXth century. It was made of adobe with a stone underground cave to stow casks and it has spacious areas to store bottles both in summer and in winter, for temperature variations are minimal. Read less
