Tasting Note

Labeled as a Vino de Autor wine, we can expect a great deal more intensity and fruit. And this ripe, full and complex version delivers black cherries and plums, mint, savory notes and even some raisins at the finish. Drink now or over the next few years.

Wine Description

Argum is a blend of Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, which is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels. The wine shows a clean, very bright ruby-red color with notes of tile on the edge of the glass. Aromas are intense, fragrant and complex, expressing red fruits, balsamic, vanilla and slight nuances of truffle. On the palate, the wine is bold, fresh and silky with ripe tannin, possessing great balance and developing a complexity of flavors that are perfectly integrated with a touch of balsamic and coffee aftertaste, including hints of spices and cocoa. Red meats, roasts, stews and all types of game, cured or blue cheeses and foies and recommended dishes for pairing with Argum.

About the Winery

The Argum winery is located on the Route of Don Quixote and a few minutes from Villarrobledo. With the same philosophy used in the care of our vineyards, we harvest the grapes that nature provides in a given year, and using the latest technology and the utmost care, we transform this precious fruit in our wines, whose main characteristics should be expressed throughout the process. In our aging cellars, outside the fast pace at which we move, our wines mature, enriched with each of the scents that they carry from the best wood and also with the peace and quiet they need.
