Santa Julia Magna 2016

Valle de Uco, Tunuyán, Central Region, Mendoza, ArgentinaA blend of 50 percent cabernet sauvignon, 40 percent malbec, and 10 percent syrah, this high altitude blend was sourced from Valle de Uco and aged for twelve months in barrel. This seems to be more about the oak than the fruit, with lots of chocolate and wood spice notes. If you’re able to look past the assertive oak, the underlying fruit is impressive for this price point, with fresh, vibrant blueberry and blackberry. Another solid value from Santa Julia.Tasted: 28 September 2019Tasted by: Geoffrey MossPrices: BC 15.00 speculative listing - The Bacchus Group Producer: Familia ZuccardiDistributors: The Bacchus Group Inc.
