Unanime Gran Vino Tinto Red

Review by Eric Tansey, CSW, Sommelier                                                                                                                  Unanime Gran Vino Tinto Red has powerful aromas of strawberries and blackberries with a hint of dark cocoa. On the palate the wine has a full bodied mouth feel with big fresh, ripe strawberry and blackberry characteristics. On the front of the palate the wine is juicy and fruit driven. on the mid palate the wine begins to show it’s earthy side delivering dusty earth, cocoa, and espresso. This wine shows great balance and structure with fresh fruit, subtle earth, firm tannin and medium plus acidity.This is a great steak night wine.

Wine Enthusiast

 “Deep and lush up front, this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Cab Franc offers highly appealing aromas of blackberry and toast. Dense, layered and hefty on the palate, this extracted but well-balanced blend piles on blueberry, black plum, cassis and toast flavors. On the finish, darker notes of espresso and bitter chocolate take over. Drink now through 2018.” http://www.winemag.com/buying-guide/mascota-2011-unanime-gran-vino-tinto-red-mendoza

 

From Winemaker Rodolfo Sadler AKA Opi or Rod

I took my first steps as a winemaker 27 years ago. My decision to become a winemaker was partly influenced by my family’s winemaking tradition and their passion for wine. As a little boy, I used to see my grandfather and father engaged in their winemaking tasks and I always wished I could one day make my own wines of which to feel proud.

The wines of Mascota Vineyards are the outcome of that dream. They have my personal imprint and are a testimony of my life story. When you put passion and enthusiasm into what you do, your dream will know no boundaries and earn you international recognition.
