Vena Cava

Phil Gregory - British lives in Mexico

Vena Cava’s wines come from select sites in Valle de Guadalupe, Valle de San Vicente and Valle de Santo Tomás. Because of their approach to making several individual fermentations of each variety and blending just before barrel aging, specific site information is not available.

All of Vena Cava’s grapes are fermented separately in two lots – half French oak barrels and half flexi tank. This gives them a variety of options when it comes time to blend in the process of making the final wine. After blending this wine was aged in French Oak barrels of 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and neutral use for 12 months before bottling.

Sulfites: 35 ppm

  • Tasting Notes and Drinking Window:

    A brooding nose of dark fruits, forest floor and clay pots. In the mouth there is considerable list here, more so than the Cab or Tempranillo almost leaning towards cranberry in intensity of acid and angularity. Tannins here, are more pronounced as well and give the wine a shape that will work very well with a red meat dish and spicy foods.
