Description

The Roca family has been producing wine in Mendoza for 4 generations, and currently farms 280+ acres in San Rafael, the southernmost province of Mendoza. At altitudes of 2,600 feet above sea level, Roca’s vineyards produce distinct, cool-climate wines of singular quality.

Tasting Notes: Loaded with authentic, Pinot Noir character. Pale in color, with black cherry fruit aromas, and light floral, vanilla notes. Ripe and round on the palate, with delicate plum character and a long, lingering finish.

Serve With: Excellent with pizza and hearty pasta dishes, it will also stand up to red meats, grilled or stewed.
