‘Raise your glass’ to Estela Armando and her grandfather’s half-century old Bonarda vineyard. This wine is fresh with notes of red raspberry and smoky oak.
Intense ruby color with bright aromas of fresh red & black raspberries and subtle smoky oak notes. The flavor of freshly-crushed raspberries is echoed on the palate, along with notes of leather, dark chocolate, and a touch sandalwood on the finish. Though quite rich and hedonistic, the seamless structure of this wine makes it a candidate for drinking in its youth or over the next few years (if you can wait that long).
It will pair well with just about any foods with which you would drink Zinfandel or other fruit-driven reds.
Dark fruit and mocha on the nose. It’s medium-bodied with elegant tannins. A racy, juicy bonarda with freshness and plenty of fruit on the palate. Flavorful yet subtle finish. Drink now.James Suckling February 2021
The 2020 Bonarda Armando hails from east Mendoza, a warm area, and was 1/3 aged in used French barrels. The nose delivers gentle, delicate fruity notes ranging from raspberry to sour cherry with a backdrop provided by the aging process. In the mouth, it's mild and expansive with delicately grippy tannins that lend depth to the palate alongside some mild freshness and a juicy finish.Vinous November 2021
