About This Wine
It is thought of as the place where Argentina’s wine revolution began.
It is Lujan de Cuyo, part of the Mendoza River’s high-altitude region, about 40 minutes south of the city of Mendoza. There, the vineyards are planted at altitudes ranging from 2,640 to 3,630 feet, with much of the vineyard acreage devoted to Argentina’s signature variety, Malbec.
But Malbec is not the only grape that thrives in Lujan de Cuyo. Chardonnay, Torrontes and Cabernet Sauvignon also have earned great stature among the men and women who make the wines and the people who drink them. As a result, a country once known for simple table wines now is acclaimed for its world-class bottlings of numerous varieties.
The 2015 Caballero de La Victoria Cabernet Sauvignon “Reserva” is a complex wine brimming with fruit, earth and oak nuances that underscores just how wonderful the wines of Lujan de Cuyo can be.
