Winemaker Notes

Aromas of cassis with mint notes and oak. Medium-bodied and classically structured with good density. The Cabernet fruit melds seamlessly with the Malbec, creating a well-structured and balanced blend with moderate tannins and a lengthy finish.

This blend will pair well with any Cab-friendly dishes such as steak, pork, lamb, and strong cheeses. It can handle any dish with cream or butter sauces.

Blend: 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Malbec, 10% Cabernet Franc

Critical Acclaim

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2017 Beso de Dante is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Malbec and 10% Cabernet Franc from Vista Flores and Altamira in the Valle de Uco. The varieties are very nicely integrated, classical and polished with some Cabernet flavors and tannins

James Suckling
Very dense blackcurrant, elderberry and roasted-artichoke nose pulls you into the powerful and structured palate that has ample tannic power. Long, nobly dry finish that makes you want a great steak right now.

A generous complement of cabernet sauvignon adds notes of green herbs and pencil lead to malbec’s plumminess. It’s dark and balanced in a rich style, with hints of licorice and sassafras adding earthy spice.
