Anka Red Blend 2010
This quaffable wine is made with a bright blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc, 10% Carmenère, and 3% Syrah. In the glass it displays a deep red color that recalls plums and strawberry aromas with a juicy texture supported by integrated tannins and a generous finish of wild berries, dried fruit, and sweet spice.
Anka is a certified organic wine that comes from the Pargua winery and the producer of Domus Aurea. Winemaker Jean Pascal Lacaze believes that wine is only as good as the grapes from which it is made. At his Maipo Valley vineyard Lacaze grows the grapes sustainably and organically, uses the best fruit, ages the wine in individually selected barrels and blends the juice at just the right time. The label artwork was created by renowned Chilean artist Benjamin Lira, who took his inspiration from the word Pargua, meaning “full moon” in the Mapuche language.
