The Tilia wines are made at Bodegas Esmeralda in the Eastern region of Mendoza. They are made by Leopoldo Kuschnaroff, a winemaker and viticulturist in charge of all Catena family vineyards in Eastern Mendoza. The grapes for this Cabernet Sauvignon are sourced from vineyards in the Eastern and Southern regions of Mendoza with elevation ranging from 1,968 to 3,937 feet above sea level.

About the Vineyard

Tilia is named after the tree commonly found in Argentina’s wine country. For years, vineyard workers have used the flowers of the Tilia to make an herbal tea for enjoyment after a hard day’s work. The name Tilia was chosen in honor of this Argentinean tradition.
 

Tasting Notes

The nose is full of ripe black fruits with subtle notes of clove, black pepper, and sweet tobacco. On the palate, flavors of black raspberries and cassis yield to more subtle notes of cedar, vanilla, and sweet spice. The fine-grained tannins lend structure to the wine, which has a soft, lingering finish.

Food Pairing

This Cabernet Sauvignon would be just as delicious paired with a Filet Mignon as it would be with a juicy cheeseburger. On a cold night, pair it with Beef Stew with Roasted Winter Vegetables.
