    Winemaker's Notes:

    Aromas of toasty oak, cassis and smoke. Cascades of red and blackcurrant fruit on the palate. 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. A wine that combines real class with excitement.

    This Cab-lovers blend will pair well with any Bordeaux or California Cabernet-friendly dishes such as steak, pork, lamb, and strong cheeses. Can handle any dish with cream or butter sauces.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2009 Beso de Dante is a blend of 50% Malbec, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 10% Cabernet Franc aged for 18 months in 70% new French oak before bottling without fining or filtration. Pain grille, pencil lead, herbs, spices, and assorted black fruits are just some of the elements that titillate the nose. Medium-bodied with a sense of elegance, this savory, layered, plush offering needs at least 3-4 years of additional cellaring to reveal its full potential. Drink it from 2013 to 2024+.
