"This Blend is produced in a limited quantity. Its result is a huge effort and this Gran Reserve wine is a delicious red blend of the best wines produced in the vintage. 74 % Malbec from La Consulta, San Carlos, 14 % Cabernet Sauvignon Lunlunta, Maipu, 12 % Petit Verdot Agrelo, Lujan de Cuyo."
"Dark purple with blue highlights. Presents hints of plums and figs, cherry and lilac flowers. The attack is fruity, very palatable, repeating red fruit together with meaty flavors and a touch of pepper and dark chocolate. Smooth final with balanced acidity." -Winery
"Despite a prolific life, Mrs. Elvira Calle decided in early 2001, to create a winery with two partners, Richard Battagion and Kirk Ermisch. Mrs. Elvira explained why she had this initiative: 'After the death of my father when I was very young, my mother was remarried to an exceptional man who became my second father. He had vineyards and I enjoyed it a lot when I was allowed to pay the field workers. Since that moment I always loved the wine industry, because it is the job of many people in my province. Even though life has filled me with satisfaction in everything I have undertaken, I was yearning in my heart, with the passage of time, the dream of creating a winery'." -Winery
