Cucharón Red Blend

2018 – Medium bodied red

Brilliant India ink, garnet-starting-towards-brick; medium body. Floral nose of blackberry over anise. Good structure, weight, feel & extraction on the palate - interesting-to-beguiling black fruits over herbs.  This is a food wine and will reward the adventurous-of-palate.

Why We Love It

A hearty red with deep flavors

Sultry with spicy Latin flair, this wine’s power and earthiness is wrapped with dark fruit flavors. Pair with rich dishes such as braised, slow-cooked meat dishes, grilled steak, and vegetarian options led by mushrooms.

Smooth and easy to drink!

This wine is a favorite for both my husband and I! Easy to drink, fruit forward and smooth. It pairs great with dark chocolate, spicy dishes or just a glass!

Red wine I can love

I don't typically drink Red but the smell alone was intoxicating and when paired with Truffles this wine was decadent and smooth. I am in love with the rich bold look and the smooth taste. I already ordered another!

Yummy and a great value!

I love wines that are dark & inky! This is a serious red yet it doesn't dry out my mouth. I paired it with goat cheese rolled in cranberries and cinnamon and it was amazing!

Terrific Red Blend!

I’m a big fan of this gorgeous wine. Served it with beef empanadas and black bean dip over the weekend and my guests were wowed!

What's not to love!

Cucharon Red Blend is a fantastic red blend! Paired w/some balsamic or dipping oils w/bread or even crackers & cheese made the flavor pop! However, this was a good sipper alll on it's own!

Cheers to Argentina!

I am in love with this Argentina, Cucharon Red Blend! Even the name is sexy! Top your dish off with bacon and you will be wanting more of both. A big hit! Thanks Traveling Vineyard!??
