Bodega Polo is a new BHW Direct Import from a winery with a long history and vineyards located in the Beverly Hills of Uco Valley in La Consulta. After fully renovating and upgrading an existing winery property in 2011, the family has relaunched with incredible hand-drawn labels that tell the story of their Heritage and Work on the land amongst the vines.
This is a wine of purity. It is not overly oaked, sweet, or cloying. It's a well-balanced, lively wine that is a pleasure to drink.
The Polo's say, "Herencia means Inheriting, which implies staying together through time, honoring our family values. Caring for the land is a responsibility the family takes seriously. Sun, water from the Andes, good people. All this inhabits each and every bottle. Believe it, there’s life in there, there are hidden sensations and there’s joy."
Tasting Notes: Bright garnet in color, the wine explodes with redolent blackberries and blueberries. Juicy yet elegant, the wine has a touch of licorice, vanilla, herbs, and pepper. Very lightly oaked, so the fruit is front and center. A perfect warm weather Cab to share as a first or third bottle.
Vines: 20+ year old from 3000+ feet toward the Andes
Aging: 10 months in 40% 2nd and 3rd year old oak.
