Juana Cabernet Franc is produced from a vineyard located in Perdriel, Luján de Cuyo, on the highest area of the Mendoza river - Mendoza, at an altitude of 950 meters above sea level. The wine shows an intense bright velvety red color. The bouquet reveals a complex expression of fresh berries followed by hints of floral aromas. The palate displays some smoked and vanilla flavors from the oak barrels. It is rich and balanced in the mouth with an elegant tannic structure and long fresh fruit finish.

Excellent when paired with red meats, pasta with spicy sauces, matured cheeses.
"A very attractive nose with poached berries, delivered in such vibrant and fragrant style. This smells like a good St.-Emilion. The palate has round, fleshy red-fruit flavors and a web of lithe, fine tannins that hold long and even. Superbly fresh and full of interest. Drink or hold." - James Suckling (April 2020), 94 pts
