This rich red wine offers pleasant notes of black fruit, dark chocolate and smoke. Atemporal translates to timeless in Spanish - time will fly when you're enjoying this wine. No time like the present to open it and enjoy with a juicy steak.

Reviews and Ratings

This single vineyard Argentine red wine has very high alcohol with a warm finish. This is a red wine blend of Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot, and the grapes grow in the same terroir located in Mendoza's Uco Valley, 3200 feet above sea level in the foothills of the Cordillera de los Andes. All three varieties of grapes in the blend are hand harvested and vinified separately in concrete tanks then aged in French oak barrels for 12 months. The 2011 vintage of the Atemporal doesn't include Syrah as have past vintages as that grape over-ripened to the point of raisining. The winery is in the process of re-grafting Syrah with Cabernet Franc. The wine was aged in mostly second use oak barrels of the French variety. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
