Lovely spice and blackcurrent from the ripe and sweet fruit, this is a richer and more polished take on many Cab Francs. Delightfully elegant, with a stony undercurrent and fine tannins.
100% Cabernet Franc. 18 months in French oak.
Riglos is a single-estate, high elevation specialist from Valle de Uco, Mendoza. Darío Werthein and Fabián Suffern founded the winery, establishing the “Finca Las Divas” vineyard on rocky soils in Gualtallary, at 4,000 feet elevation, with Paul Hobbs collaborating with winemaker “Pulqui” Rodríguez and the vineyard team from day one. The proximity to the Andes Mountains and high elevation creates sunny, cool growing conditions where thick-skinned berries develop high polyphenol levels and rich aromatics while retaining freshness. The resulting, excellently-structured wines carry layers of fruit and herbal aromatics highlighted by lithe minerality, supported by polished tannins.
