Vineyard is located by the Andes at an altitude of 4000 feet, hand harvested and gravity pressed. Aged 4 months in French and American barrels.

Highly Recommended G-Rated Wines
Cellers Melis Obrador, Priorat Spain 2015
"Bright violet color. Displays smoke-accented cassis and cherry aromas that are complicated by suggestions of violet and licorice. Pliant and spicy on the palate, offering bitter cherry and boysenberry flavors and a sweetening vanilla flourish. The long, focused finish features dusty tannins, repeating spiciness and a lingering mocha note."
90 Points Vinous
Hecho Por Ruben Syrah, Ballard Canyon 2014
Regular $44.99 SVP $39.99
"The last vintage that will be released under this label, the 2014 Hecho por Ruben is lovely, offering up notions of sweet blackberry, smoke and grilled fruit, followed by a supple, medium-bodied, savory palate with real Syrah character, framed by fine tannins and concluding with a long, flavorful finish."
Note: We have less than 12 bottles of this wine. Order it fast if you don't want to be left out! Ruben only made 250 cases and it's all gone and he ain't making anymore of this wine!
