Winemaker's Notes

This wine has deep, dark, violet color with reddish hues. The nose offers intense, focused aromas of ripe cassis and black currant fruit intertwined with notes of tobacco, cedar, and a touch of eucalyptus. The mouthfeel is full and concentrated with layers of rich black berry flavors and elements of frosted mint, espresso and graphite.

Critical Acclaim

"This cabernet has the tension and intensity of flavor from grapes grown at high altitude. That character comes across in notes of sour cherries, blackberries and pepper. The structure is robust and powerful enough to match filet mignon with Roquefort. "
92 Points

"It exhibits an enticing perfume of wood smoke, cedar, tobacco, black currant and blackberry. On the palate it is medium to full-bodied with ample spicy black fruits, integrated tannins, complex flavors and a lengthy finish. It is an outstanding Cabernet value."
90 Points

"Good bright medium ruby. Superripe aromas of cassis, mocha, cola and chocolatey oak are complicated by cooler suggestions of graphite and tobacco leaf. Sweet, lush and silky, but with nicely integrated acidity framing the dark berry and cedary oak flavors. This is fat with fruit and downright sexy, with none of the cooked character shown by many 2006 reds from Mendoza."

I first had this wine at a wine tasting and it was amazing. I ordered a bottle and did not disappoint. I brought it for a dinner with friends and people were raving. It is about as smooth as a cab can get. Highly recommend!

(ahr-jen-TEE-nah) Now fifth in the world for wine production, Argentina is catching up in the quality wine sector. A long time wine producer, Argentina used to make wine in order to drink it, not export it. And so the wines produced were quaffable and rustic and made for the local's everyday dinner. Yet it's hard not to get caught up in the wine market of the world and some...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
