A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Merlot.
The flagship wine of Bodega Weinert, the Cavas de Weinert blend represents our wine philsophy, a fine red wine of great personality.
Under its deep, ruby tone with purple sparkles springs up its stable and vigorous structure. Its tannic richness guarantees its longevity, but a discreet fruit-bearing taste prevails. It offers a full-bodied bouquet. A wine of great distinction, a complex scented blend with reminiscent fragrances of great French oak in which its aged for 3-4 years, which contribute to its elaboration.
The 2002 Cavas de Weinert Gran Vino is a blend of 40% Malbec, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 20% Merlot. Supple, elegant, and forward, it has some succulent fruit, attractive spice notes, and good balance. Drink it now and over the next 5 years.
Weinert is a legendary name in Argentina wine circles because their 1977 is recognized as one of the first great Malbecs and received major accolades from Robert Parker. I recently had a chance to taste it again; the wine has stood the test of time very nicely. That said, the current releases of Bodega y Cavas de Weinert are a very long way from that level of quality.
