This sustainably farmed, single vineyard estate wine is composed of 100% hand harvested Cabernet Sauvignon from the Calchaqui Valley, Salta. This fruit driven wine shows notes of black cherry, cassis, and plum with a hint of black licorice on the nose. Good structure and solid tannin with touches of black olive and cedar on the finish.
El Porvenir was founded within the Calchaqui Valley in the town of Cafayate by the Romero-Marcuzzi family in 2000. Their first winery was founded in the late 1970’s in Tolombón, just a few miles from the town of Cafayate. The family has been an integral part of the Cafayate community ever since and we believe that El Porvenir de Cafayate is one of the benchmark wineries of the Salta. The family and wines show a great love and respect for the local terroir and they strive to maintain the legacy of their ancestors while incorporating current winemaking and viticulture.
All grapes are hand harvested, with little intervention in the winery to maintain the purity of the fruit. The winery is currently run by Lucia Romero-Marcuzzi, the granddaughter of Roberto, the founder of El Porvenir.
Pairs well with beef, lamb, and poultry dishes.
