Winemaker's notes - The wine is made by Hélène Garcin-Lévêque
and her husband, viticulturalist Patrice Lévêque, also the owners of Bodegas Poesia and Clos des Andes.
Unlike these two wines, however, Pasodoble is made using grapes purchased from specially selected growers
throughout Argentina’s most prestigious growing region - Mendoza. The grapes used to make Pasodoble (equal parts of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Syrah) are treated with a
minimum amount of chemicals before being harvested by hand. The goal is to insure that only ripe healthy
grapes are harvested, while maintaining the natural unspoiled beauty of this special viticultural region. The
wine is fermented exclusively in tank to maintain its fresh fruity character. Pasodoble is a great wine to serve
by itself at cocktail parties, but is also versatile enough to be a welcome addition to any dinner table!
Wine Advocate Review:
The crimson-colored 2007 Paso Doble is a blend of 30% Malbec, 30% Syrah, 20% Bonarda, and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon aged for 12 months in French oak, 20% new. The nose reveals cedar, spice box, pepper, blueberry, and black cherry. Medium to full-bodied on the palate, the wine has plenty of spicy, savory fruit, good balance, and a forward personality. Drink this excellent value over the next four years.
30% Malbec, 30% Syrah, 20% Bonarda, and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon aged for 12 months in French oak. Flavors dance from the glass in bursts of blueberry, black cherry, pepper and spice. A full-bodied, polished and inventive blend.
