Quick Overview

Alma Negra Misterio, Luca Malbec, chocolates and presentation notes


Gift basket contains two fantastic wines from Argentina. The first is ALMA NEGRA MISTERIO 2007 This is the Icon wine of Alma Negra. Crafted from vineyards in Vista, Flores, Tunuyán, Mendoza and La Vendimia, Rivadavia, Mendoza, this wine is a unique and mysterious blend that changes based on the cuvees available each year. Ernesto Catena selects specific barrels to devote to the Gran Misterio in order to achieve the final wine. The winemaker then crafts the final blend. It is only made every few years and 2007 was considered a superb year. Rich and layered with spice notes on the nose as well as dark fruit. The palate has great depth with flavors of cocoa, black berry and exotic spice all coming together nicely on the lengthy,structured finish. This wine pairs well with beef tenderloin and short ribs The second is LUCA MALBEC.This is a great example of Mendoza Malbec. Incredible color—could use it in an inkwell! Loads of spice and black cherry cola aromas with notes of cocoa. The berry flavors really pop on the palate as the wine has both good depth and very lively acidity that leads to an incredibly long finish. A bottom note of freshly brewed espresso keeps the mouth watering too. Pairs well with foods such as venison or wild game, steak, pork, quail, all types of lamb, and medium-strong cheeses. A very flexible wine due to its concentration and balance. Wine Spectator - 93pts "Very suave and polished, with ripe, pure flavors of blackberry, hoisin sauce and black pepper. Finely textured, this is packed with tar and roasted plum notes, showing plenty of licorice snap and dark chocolate accents on the powerful finish." Gift basket includes chocolates. Chocolates and baskets may vary. We include in all gift baskets a gift message of your choice, and a presentation sheet detailing the wines in the gift basket.
