Though widely known for its Malbec wines, Argentina wine producers are making a mark for their creations in other varietals, such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. Today’s Argentinian wine, Casarina Sinergy Red Blend 2013, caught our attention given its robust varietal blend; Malbec (70%), Cabernet Sauvignon (20%), Cabernet Franc (7%), Petit Verdot (3%). Further, this red blend comes with one of the most discreet wine label designs that we’ve seen in awhile, and with such mystery, who wouldn’t want to give this blend a try?
Casarina Sinergy Red Blend 2013 is produced by Casarena Bodega, which is located in Mendoza. A relatively young production (winery operations began in 2007) that already holds impressive accolades from the wine industry, along with many award winning wines in its portfolio.
On colour, Casarina Sinergy Red Blend 2013 holds a ruby hue. On the nose, blackberry, oak and light pepper are noted. On the palate, citrus like tannins, anise and red berries are present.
Casarina Sinergy Red Blend 2013 wine comes with a medium length finish and what’s most remembered is the uniqueness of the tannins on the mouth.
This wine retails at the LCBO for $21.95
