DECERO THE OWL & THE DUST DEVIL 2015

Wine Region: Mendoza, Argentina

Grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot, Tannat

Tasting Notes

This red wine is a single vineyard blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Tannat. The Cabernet gives the wine backbone and structure which is supported by the aromatics and silky profile of the Malbec. Petit Verdot and Tannat provide not only a rich core to the wine but also depth of character and flavor for superb ageing potential.

Ratings

Wine Enthusiast 90 pts - This blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Tannat is rich yet it well balanced. Its jammy berry aromas are creamy but also a touch reedy. On the palate, dark black fruit flavors show their herbal, peppery side. It finishes plush. Drink through 2021.

About the Winery

Decero, meaning "from scratch", was born of a bare patch of land and a family's love affair with wine. Winemaking in Thomas Schmidheiny's family went back to his grandparents in Switzerland and, just as Napa had inspired his mother, Adda, in the 1970s, so too did Agrelo capture the heart and mind of Thomas, when travelling over the Andes into Argentina, 20 years later.
