SAURUS SELECT CABERNET SAUVIGNON

 

Familia Schroeder’s Estate is located in San Patricio del Chañar Valley, at 39° South Latitude, in the wild plains of northern Patagonia, the southernmost wine region of Argentina. This dry and extreme terroir is characterized by frequent winds, cool nights and longer summer days.
During the construction of the winery, fossilized bones of an herbivorous dinosaur that roamed the earth 75 million years ago were discovered, inspiring the brand Saurus.
This Cabernet Sauvignon shows an attractive deep purplish red color. Ripe blackberries and black cherries with hints of black pepper. Soft and full on the palate, yet remarkably fresh and appealing. Long persistence.
