Beyond the city lights and bright colors of Buenos Aires, Argentina lie the rugged vineyards of Mendoza. The cool mountain air tangos with long, hot days of sunshine, swinging the temperatures high and low and providing ideal conditions for the Malbec grapes. You are invited to enter Laberinto, the labyrinth, a wine with impressive complexity, velvety texture, and good depth of flavor. Go forth with confidence and immerse yourself in the bold and bright layers of Argentina.
The vineyards for Laberinto come from the northwestern region of Mendoza in the foothills of the Andes Mountains, about 750 meters above sea level (2,500 feet). Arid continental weather conditions give a huge thermal amplitude between day and night temperatures, allowing for the development of high quality fruit with low disease pressure.

Juicy, fruity, and savory, this ultra-balanced Malbec is sure to complement any occasion, from a barbecue with friends to a mid-week meal. Also available on tap.
