About This Wine

The grapes being grown in Chile’s Central Valle are of exceptional quality.

That’s why it makes perfect sense to experiment with multi-varietal blends in crafting the wines. In the case of the “Cerro Solo” red cuvee from El Guardian, the varietal mix is Cabernet Sauvignon (70%) and Malbec (30%).

Rich ruby in hue with a dark fruit aroma, the wine opens up in the mouth to reveal enticing bing cherry and dark red fruit flavors, accented by hints of leather, chocolate and eucalyptus. The wine is fresh on the palate with good weight, and while there are tannins present, they are not in the least bit harsh. The finish is of perfect length and quite smooth.

Cerro Solo is a large stratovolcano on the border between Argentina and Chile. It reaches 7,287 feet into the sky and has nine eruptive centers. El Guardian’s “Cerro Solo” Red Wine provides an eruption of delicious flavors.
