Wine of the Week
Bodegas Renacer make Punto Final wines. Family owned and run by two generations, with the help of Alberto Antonini, who is a consultant winemaker for wineries around the world. They source their grapes from vineyard that are about 90 years old. This Cabernet spends 6 months in oak, and is entirely fermented by native yeasts. Deep ruby in color with aromas of cherries, currents, plums and black pepper. The palate begins with plum and cherry flavors leading to sweet spice and cassis notes on the finish. Smooth, finely grained tannins compliment the lingering finish.
You might think that Argentina only makes Malbec. But, Cab holds a special place in the Argentine heart. An author once wrote "Scratch an Argentine and they bleed Cabernet." So, grilled meats, nice robust cheeses, like aged Manchego are perfect for this red. Buy two bottles and use one to braise bone in short ribs low and slow for 3 hours. and serve with cheesy Polenta. A dish fit for Mendoza!
