Alfredo Roca from Mendoza Argentina

Alfredo Roca from Mendoza Argentina
The Roca family has been producing wine in Mendoza for 4 generations, and currently farms 280+ acres in San Rafael, the southernmost province of Mendoza. At altitudes of 2,600 feet above sea level, Roca’s vineyards produce distinct, cool-climate wines of singular quality.

2015 Alfredo Roca Chardonnay....$12.99
Tasting Notes:  Offers vibrant pear and apple aromas. Has a touch of richness, but thankfully lacks fat, buttery flavors.
Serve With: Excellent on its own, but can stand up to richly sauced poultry, seafood, or creamy pasta dishes.

2016 Alfredo Roca Malbec Mendoza...$13.99
100% Malbec
Tasting Notes: Concentrated, complex dark fruit aromas of cassis and plums on the nose. Well balanced, with soft tannins and a lingering finish.
Serve With: Excellent with flavorful grilled meats including marinated skirt steak, kabobs and more.

2016 Alfredo Roca Pinot Noir...$13.99
100% Pinot Noir
Tasting Notes: Deep crimson color, with black cherry fruit aromas, and light floral, vanilla notes. Ripe and full-bodied on the palate, with delicate plum character and a long, lingering finish.
Serve With: Excellent with pizza and hearty pasta dishes, it will also stand up to red meats, grilled or stewed.
