TintoNegro Cabernet Franc 2014
TintoNegro, meaning “black wine” in Spanish, is meant to celebrate the essence of Malbec in Mendoza. Known for its dark, blackish color, Malbec is definitely a Tinto Negro. TintoNegro wines are meant to reflect the heart and soul of Malbec in Mendoza. The portfolio explores the terroirs of Mendoza where Malbec does best, gradually isolating unique vineyard sites and winemaking techniques which can showcase the heights of concentration and complexity to which Malbec can aspire. TintoNegro was born of the long time friendship and professional collaboration of Alejandro Sejanovich and Jeff Mausbach, colleagues at Bodega Catena Zapata for almost 15 years. As Wine Education Director for Catena, Jeff travelled the world preaching the gospel of the unique character of high altitude Malbec from Mendoza, explaining the character and expression of its many different terroirs. As Vineyard Director at Catena, Alejandro had extensive, first hand experience growing Malbec in all of these terroirs, from the fruit driven, easy drinking style of Lujan de Cuyo to the concentrated, complex profile La Consulta. His intimate knowledge of the top vineyards in each region means TintoNegro wines are made from only the best fruit each area has to offer.
|Appellation||Alto Vale de Uco|
Wine AdvocateThere is a new wine here that kind of breaks the logic of the project, as it's not Malbec, it's the 2014 Uco Valley Cabernet Franc sourced from the Chacayes and Los Árboles districts of the Uco Valley. The nose does not reveal the grape, rather is a mix of floral and wild berry aromas. But the palate shows grainy, fine tannins and some herbal flavors with great acidity that are classic Cabernet Franc. 30,000 bottles produced.
