The idyllic characteristics of this environment bring our wines to perfection much earlier than wines made from grapes grown in regions with shorter seasons. Cultivated with arid-clean air, crystal-clear water, and nutrient-rich soil, Piattelli’s Cabernet grapes are grown on 12-year-old vines located in the high-altitude Uco Valley (Elevation: 3,937 feet), which are managed to yield only 5.5 pounds of fruit per vine and 4.45 tons per acre.

  • Grapes were hand-picked and manually sorted
  • Grapes underwent 3 days of cold maceration
  • Fermented in small, 25,000-liter stainless steel tanks
  • Follows 90% of the same process as Grand Reserve Cabernet
     
Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A bold, distinguished wine in a dark red hue, Premium Cabernet’s enticing bouquet of blackberry and black pepper unfolds across the palate, lingering with a moderate tannin pull and a hint of spice, which pairs beautifully with red meats and flavorful spices.
