You can definitely woo your beloved with the sophisticated  2012 Doña Paula Estate Black Edition Red Wine.  Which shows  that Argentinean wines are definitely coming of age,  with a new breed of elegant, harmonious blends that are  light on the oak, well-balanced and easy to drink.

The winemaker’s  choice of  the Bordeaux varieties (60% Malbec, 37% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 3% Petite Verdot) that grow  in El Alto Estate in Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza  − a terroir over 3,400 feet above sea level which is the dream of any winemaker −  make for an  complex, well-structured, well-balanced and lively wine with  intense fruit concentration and freshness.  The well-rounded,  intriguing tannins,  exciting acidity,  long aromatic finish and  sophistication belie  its alcohol content (14.1% ) and its price ($14.99).

The 2012 Doña Paula ‘Black Edition’ Red Blend underwent cold pre-fermentation maceration to extract primary aromas and was aged in French Oak barrel for 10 months. The wine has an intense black, purple color in the glass and offers aromas of red and black fruits, spice, some mint and red pepper. In the mouth, the wine has round tannins and a long finish.

Pairs well  with beef, lamb, game meat, pasta, risotto, cheeses .
