TN : Trivento Eolo Malbec 2007, Lujan de Cuyo, Mendoza, Argentina

The grapes for this wine come from vines planted in 1912. Trivento means Three Winds: the Polar, Zonda, and Sudestada winds blow across the sunny and arid land of Mendoza. From the back label, "Eola, Keeper of the Winds, displays his power in spellbound lands. Freeing the Polar, Zonda, and Sudestada winds in a whim, in Mendoza, the enigmatic and mystical God picked out our terrain. Rushing through the vineyards, shaping grapes Eola yields heavenly fruit for this potent symbol and seductive wine. Our finest wine is fitting tribute to the God of the Wind.
