    Cuvelier Los Andes Coleccion is a powerful red blend crafted by the French Cuvelier family of vintners out of their Argentine winery. It's big and ripe, loaded with dense flavors of espresso, chocolate and oak, with mere suggestions of dark floral notes and substantial, yet well-integrated tannins, and it's ready to drink today. If you've mastered a good steak frites, this Coleccion is your man. A spring lamb ragu over pappardelle is another intoxicatingly good combo. Craving a vegetarian option? How about an earthy, garlicky wild mushroom sauce over whole wheat spaghetti? ¿C'est tres bien, no es así?

    Wine Spectator:  "A ripe, muscular, full-bodied red, with concentrated dark fruit flavors that feature plenty of Asian spice and smoke notes. Mocha and dark chocolate accents fill the finish. Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2022." Feb 2019
