The Uco Valley is a key wine-growing region of Mendoza, Argentina. Located in a clearly defined valley an hour's drive south from the city of Mendoza, the region is home to the production of some of Mendoza's most famous wines. Argentina's icon grape variety of Malbec shines in the Uco Valley, producing terroir-driven red wines with a distinctive floral aroma.
Although considered part of the Mendoza region, the Uco Valley (or Valle de Uco in Spanish) can be recognized in its own right on several counts. Not only is the vine-growing area quite distinct; the region is also home to several of Argentina's top producers. Attracted by the excellent climate and soil quality.

Deep, ripe, layered berry aromas come with notes of pastry and licorice. This feels tight and pure, with juicy acidity that prevents things from seeming too heavy. Blackberry, cassis, wood grain and peppery spice flavors finish long and impressive, with rich notes of fig paste and chocolate. Drink through 2022.
