The Ocaso winery in the Mendoza winemaking region of Argentina produces flavorful quality wines that are incredibly food friendly. Some of their most popular selections include:
This full flavored Argentine red offers aromas of black cherry and blackberry with underlying hints of spice and earth tones. These flavors are reinforced on the palate, along with nice firm tannins and a pleasant leather note in the finish.
Ocaso Pinot Noir
This light ruby red wine has aromas of red fruit, underbrush, and spice with underlying hints of menthol. These flavors are reinforced on the palate, along with subtle oak and an ample acidity that persists through its refreshing finish.
The nose is very fruit forward, with black cherry and touches of blackberry coming through and notes of spice and earth notes. Its palate has juicy blackberry, with nice firm tannins, and a nice leather note in the finish.
Floral and honey notes highlight this wine’s palate with a bright acidity and minerality. Apricot and peach, with a little lychee, add great depth of flavor for a great value. Excellent with spicy Latin or Thai dishes.
Ocaso’s strides in quality and sustainability make it a great introduction to the wine of Argentina.
