    Altocedro "La Consulta Select" Red Blend '19

    Uco Valley

    Altocedro "La Consulta Select" Red Blend '19

    Located in Mendoza, in the region of La Consulta, Valle de Uco, at the foothills of the Andes, the Altocedro winery was founded in 1999 by Karim Mussi, a third-generation Lebanese immigrant. Karim and his family pioneered La Consulta in the Uco Valley as a special place to make wines, and it is now one of Argentina’s few GIs (Geographic Indications). Mendoza is widely associated with Malbec, but the area is home to other high-quality varieties as well, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Tempranillo, and Syrah. All harvesting, sorting, and crushing are done by hand, using no machinery. Altocedro uses original old vine rootstocks, indigenous yeasts, and hundred-year-old concrete fermentation tanks. 


    “La Consulta Select” is a full-bodied, Bordeaux-style blend of 37% Malbec, 21% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Cabernet Franc, 11% Merlot, 10% Tempranillo, 5% Syrah. Aged for 12 months in French oak barrels, it’s complex and full-bodied, with aromas of plum, blackberry, and cassis, as well as cacao, baking spices, and earth. Pair it with steak and other red-meat dishes, or any hearty fare in general.
