The good climate blend 2013 Winemaker's Blend Corralillo is Syrah-based and then there is some 33% Malbec and 18% Cabernet Franc from their El Rosario vineyard, where they have the older plantings, plus a pinch of Petit Verdot. The grapes are destemmed and crushed and put in one open-top tank by gravity. There is a seven-day cold soak and then fermentation starts. Malolactic is in barrels where the wine matured for 16 months. The blend is done at the end, before bottling. They look for hillside vineyards as they get the expression of Syrah with more red fruit and less black olives, fresher, which goes better with the floral aromas of Malbec, and the chocolate and tobacco notes of Cabernet Franc. The nose is very showy, floral, aromatic, intense and clean with integrated oak. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins and the freshness of place, as well as the...
2013 growing conditions. There are not that many cool climate blends. I liked this very much, and believe it should develop nicely in bottle. 41,000 bottles were filled in August 2014.

TASTING NOTES

An impressive release that speaks volume of the pedigree of Tenuta San Guido’s wines. Guidalberto is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot. A voluptuous nose charged with blackcurrant, black cherries, damson notes is rained in by mineral, almost balsamic hints of black olive, mint, tomato leaf and fresh black pepper. The exuberant nose of youth shouldn’t distract from the...
