More about this wine from Mendoza, Argentina
The crew at Casarena Estate are making some super unique wines in Mendoza, Argentina. Only 300 cases of this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec are available in the United States and we're pumped to be able to share this winter warmer of a red wine with the WA community. “Casarena” literally merges two Spanish words “casa” (house) and “arena” (sand), and the name is a tribute to the business's restored 1930s winery made of sand-colored stone and the sandy soil that the estate is built on.

The grapes are hand harvested and the wine is juicy, bold, and packed with ripe fruit like plums, cherries, and blackberries. On the palate is a juicy, spicy wine with lovely inner-mouth energy and umami character due to its dense, smooth flavors of dark berries and black peppercorn. Your sip finishes with substantial dusty, ripe tannins and subtle lingering fruitiness.
