Alpasión, Grand Cabernet Franc, Mendoza, Argentina, 2018
The people behind this project are all wine lovers who decided to make a dream come true by making honest, iconic wines together. We decided to name our inaugural release “Alpasión,” a combination of the Spanish “alma” (soul) and “pasión” (passion). The Alpasión label features the fingerprints and signatures of all of the winery’s owners as testimony to friendship for life.
The Alpasión label features the fingerprints and signatures of all of the winery owners, underlining a highly personal, hands-on project and a partnership driven by passion and friendship for life. Even part of the vineyard is planted in the shape of a giant fingerprint.
This wine is Alpasion’s innovative take on the interesting Cabernet Francs coming out of Argentina right now. The wine has good volume, boasts an intense ruby color and bright aromas of cherries, ripe currants and hints of leaves, green peppers and a marked mineral touch. The palate is reminiscent of peppers and spices. This is balanced with notes of coffee and chocolate, brought by 12 months of ageing in French Bordeaux style barrels. This wine pairs well with red meats and spicy sauces.
