La Coste de Los Andes Andillian Cabernet Franc 2022

Luján de Cuyo, Northern Region, Mendoza, ArgentinaLa Coste de Los Andes is an Argentine project from France's Chateau La Coste. Their wines are to merge the sunny spirit of La Provence with the luminous heights of the Andes Mountains. This organic cabernet franc comes from alluvial vineyards in Alto Agrelo, Luján de Cuyo. This underwent a pre-ferment carbonic maceration for 5 days before 2 weeks of ferment with foot stomping. Fragrant cherries, ripe black raspberry is seasoned with mountain herbs and sapid stems running along the medium palate. Tannins are fine, graphite and sticky, finishing in a stony rinse.
