92 pts Wine & Spirits June 2011
From old vines grown at an elevation of 7,000 feet, this wine honors its name in the fruit's dark side, a thicket of black cherry flavors so dense and compressed that the strong acidity battles to prevail in the dark panorama. Too young to drink, this wine needs at least three years in the cellar before bringing it into the light.
Bela Lugosi, the man and the legend, is forever linked to Count Dracula. He was an American film pioneer who created his unique characterization on the Broadway stage in 1927 and brought it to the screen in 1931. Although Count Dracula never “drank” wine, Bela Lugosi, the man, had impeccable taste in wines. With the creation of the Bela Lugosi brand wines, the Lugosi family pays tribute to their patriarch, a man of distinction, while acknowledging the icon that will forever be – Dracula.
This 2007 vintage was produced exclusively for Lugosi Wines by the Domingo Hermanos Winery in Argentina.
ONLY 1200 HAND NUMBERED BOTTLES WERE PRODUCED
