Domaine de la Chanteleuserie translates to "place where the larks sing".

Family vintners for over 100 years, the Catenas are recognized for their pioneering role in high-altitude viticulture in Argentina.

Here, the sandy-loam soils and mountainous climate yield a wine with concentrated ripe red berries, a touch of eucalyptus and black pepper, robust tannins and smooth lengthy finish.

Jonata Cab Franc El Alma 2011 $128.00
What? A $128 Cab Franc? So what if Parker gave it a 96. Then I tasted this remarkable creature. Soft violets and herbs on the nose wrapped in dark cocoa, tobacco, and some dark currant. Big yet elegant flavors of plum and black cherry. I've never had Cab Franc this muscular yet refined. The alcohol and oak try for a moment to get in the way but with just a few minutes it's all amazing Cab Franc.
