A fragrant, youthful yet lush Mendoza Cabernet with a splash of Merlot & Cabernet Franc.
Grape Varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon
Style: Rich, full
Drink By: 2015
90 points: Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Jay Miller)
Beautiful deep red colour with perfumed aromas of ripe black cherries, strawberries and roasted cocoa beans. This wine is full and incredibly lush for a young Cabernet. It explodes on the palate with red and black fruits, then shows baking spices on its way to a mouthwatering finish. A small amount of Merlot and Cabernet Franc was blended for greater complexity.
Enjoy with beef, sausages, spiced or grilled pork, veal, rabbit, medium-strong cheeses and meat based pasta sauces.
Jay Miller, RP's Wine Advocate: "Blended with 5% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc; spicy, fragrant, complex; excellent length." 90 points.
Starting in 1999 Susana Balbo crafted a line of wines to showcase the ripe fruit expression of her sustainably-farmed Mendoza vineyards. As South America’s first woman winemaker, has been an inspiration for many over the years, with her drive and passion for wine and the wine business globally. A truly outstanding winemaker.The philosophy is a simple one, that is to grow great grapes and make wines that are true to their place. Minimal intervention during the growing season and through harvest allows the true fruit character to develop. Combine this with Susana’s winemaking skills and the result is wines that express the powerful fruit flavours, the ripe tannins and the incredible length and balance that can only come from this one place: Mendoza.
