Mini Ediciones Petit Verdot 2014

Agrelo, Mendoza, Argentina

As the name suggests, Mini Ediciones are highly limited parcels of wine. From lesser known varieties, these wines are wholly expressive of the Remolinos Vineyard and represent an opportunity to taste a variety rarely seen in a pure form.

Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Agrelo, Mendoza, Argentina

Agrelo is recognized for red varieties and while it has been acknowledged for its high-quality Malbec it has also become known as the source of some of the finest Cabernet Sauvignon emanating from Argentina. The wine has a beautiful, full-bodied structure that comes across effortlessly due to the hallmark Decero refinement.

James Suckling "A dense and velvety cabernet with currants, chocolate and hints of oak on the nose and palate. Full body, chewy tannins and a savory finish."

Wine Spectator (Smart Buy) “Big and rich, with zesty acidity behind the dark plum, blackberry and dark currant flavors. Chocolate nib notes show midpalate, while creamy accents fill the pure, fruit-filled finish.”
