Zaha Cabernet Sauvignon
WHY WE LOVE IT
- Planted at high density, 7000 plants per hectare.
- Zaha, which means “heart” makes reference to the passion that moves us to produce these wines in the Geographic Indication of Paraje Altamira.
- Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the most widely planted varieties in Argentina.
Varietal Composition: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Elaboration: Harvested in three different moments in order to achieve contrasting profiles in the fruit set at each point. The first moment, in mid-march, adds to the floral and fresh herbaceous profile. A week later solid and refined tannins start to take place alongside deep blackish color. In the last moment the fruity profile is enhanced alongside with concentration and mouthfeel.
Tasting Notes: Zaha Cabernet Sauvignon is a long-lived wine, black fruit aromas and green bell pepper characterize it. Marked tannins in the palate alongside a juicy plum mouthfeel. Long and complex finish.

In 2010 Alejandro Sejanovich y Jeff Mausbach elaborated their first two wines (Zaha and Teho), driven by their desire to reflect the terroir characteristics of their Toko and Tomal vineyards. Zaha means “heart of the earth” in the native indigenous language of the local Huarpes. That is how Bodega Teho was born, today it counts with a portfolio that gets bigger year after year, thanks to the continuous research into the diverse micro terroirs of Mendoza.
