Hailing from the Uco Valley in Mendoza, this limited production wine paints a portrait of sophistication and depth. Its deep purple-red hues, reminiscent of the Argentine night sky, precede a sensory journey. Breathe in the enchanting aromas of ripe plums, dried figs, and subtle spices, intertwined with hints of green pepper and fennel. The palate unfolds with a bold initiation, revealing a harmonious interplay of sweet yet assertive tannins. Cultivated in the elevated terrain of Los Chacayes IG, where the soil bears the mark of ancient wisdom, this wine embodies the spirit of the region. Aged for 15 months in second and third-use French oak, this wine is a testament to patience and precision, with only 200 cases in existence. Indulge in its complexity alongside red meats, rich red sauces, roasted vegetables, and the luxurious embrace of fine chocolates, and let every sip transport you to the heart of Argentina's winemaking excellence.

This wine family, led by Luis Soria (winemaker) and Gonzalo Testa (Viticulturist), grew up in the vineyards and is sharing with us some amazing wines. On several occasions we have had the honor of sharing an asado (bbq) with these families and enjoyed their wines together. Not only are they one of the most likable families around, all of their wine is of excellent quality. It was very, very difficult to pick only four wines to import.

Winemaker Notes
WINEMAKER: Luis Soria. Born in Tunuyán, located in the prestigious wine-growing area of the Uco Valley in Argentina, he took his first steps as a plant operator in a local winery at just 18 years of age. It was there that he discovered his love for the land, grapes, and wines. This prompted him to pursue a formal education in the field, obtaining a Bachelor’s Degree in Enology and Viticulture at the prestigious Juan Agustín Maza University, Mendoza, Argentina. After completing his academic training, he began to forge his career in various renowned wineries and companies such as- The Vines of Mendoza, Corazon del Sol, and Michell Rolland Wines. Additionally, he expanded his horizon by working abroad, gaining valuable experience in the United States, specifically in Willamette Valley, Oregon, and Napa Valley, California. Luis, a quickly rising star in the Argentinian wine industry, decided to embark on his own path as an oenological advisor and founded, together with his partners, of three wineries in the Uco Valley that bear his distinctive seal: Chañar Lorenzo Estate Winery, Delator de Sueños Wines y Dharma Wines. These projects represent his vision for the creation of exceptional and unique wines, reflecting the diversity and quality that characterizes the region.
