The Revancha 2016 ‘La Gran’ is a Bordeaux-style blend from the heart of Mendoza, Argentina. Bright ruby in color, this wine offers vibrant aromas of blackberry, boysenberry, licorice and dark chocolate on the nose, with subtle hints of flowers, spices (pink peppercorn and white pepper), and notes of vanilla and caramel. The palate is rich yet dry with a harmonious blend of fresh acidity, faint herbal qualities, soft tannins, and a wonderful complexity. A full-bodied, unctuous wine with a persistent finish. Try pairing the Revancha 2016 ‘La Gran’ Red Blend with roasted red meats or traditional Argentine sweet breads. Enjoy!
