High Note gets its name in reference to the altitude of the vineyards located high in the Andes Moutains of the Uco Valley. Mendoza lies in the foothills of the moutians and the vineyards range from 3,300-5,000 ft above sea level, which lends unique characteristics to the wine. Although these wines will have the necessary acidity and tannins to age, it might be hard for many to refrain from their immediate appeal. This red blend is 50% Malbec, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Syrah, 10 % Bonarda. 6-9 Months in 50% French 50% American Oak (25% New Oak).
