By now you have likely tasted through the 2007 vintage Albert 154 wines. If sales are any indication, they are by far the best wines we have ever produced in our small Lujan de Cuyo based winery. In early 2007 we separated out and fermented a small selection of our best grapes from that harvest, aging the microcuvees with a combination of new and used French oak. Luis Barraud (of Vina Cobos fame) went on to finish the project, assembling the final blend this summer. Now that the wine has had some time to settle in bottle, this blend of 32% Malbec, 23% Bonarda, 21% Syrah, 16% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 8% Merlot is drinking fabulously, filled with the dense rustic flavors of dark fruits and berries that typify this region.
We named the wine Ca’ de Calle (Calle’s Place), in honor of Elivra Calle, the woman who shared our vision of remodeling this historic winery and helped turn it into reality.
Production is limited to 550 cases.
