From: Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza, Argentina
Varietal: Cabernet Franc
Taste & Critical Acclaim: Pure aromas of raspberry, bing cherry, plum, and wild herb aromas lead to toasty cedar and dried savory herbs. The palate is fresh and medium to full-bodied, with fine tannins, great concentration, and balance. The flavors continue the notes the nose offers, and it doesn’t feel weighty, ending with a finish that’ll have you wanting another glass before you know it.
JS 91 pt James Suckling
Beeswax, raspberries, cherries and wild herbs on the nose. Olive stones, too. Medium-bodied, sleek and soft, with fine tannins and a juicy finish.
Pairing: Anything off the grill, served with chimichurri is usually an easy bet for Argentina’s red wines. For today’s pairing, we’re going vegan & recommend that you try this mouthwatering recipe by J. Kenji López-Alt for “Vegan Turkish Kebabs With Sumac Onions and Garlic-Dill Mayonnaise.” It’ll take around 40 minutes to make, and will yield about 4 servings.
About. Belasco de Baquedano is the Agrelo district of Lujan de Cuyo. The vineyards soar up to 3,346 feet, where the conditions are excellent to produce elegant yet powerful premium wines. Warm days are offset by cool nights with as much as a 45°F diurnal swing, which produces aroma and flavor while holding acidity.
The winery has 222 acres of 100-year-old Malbec from the original French clones and utilizes green viticultural methods, with irrigation fed by snow melt.
The wines are gravity-driven table-to-tank (sorting table for grapes to the tank for fermentation), using délestage (submerged cap) tanks in fermenting red wine with skins and seeds included for excellent fruit, soft tannins, and deep color. Their wines are bottled unfiltered in the traditional artisan style to preserve subtle aromas and flavors while promoting richness, body, and color.
