Winemaker's Notes:

This 1997 Balbi Vineyard Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is a sumptuous wine with well rounded layers of ripe black cherry, and elegant hints of smoke and chocolate. Enjoy it with grilled lamb or beef, or any pasta dish with a hearty tomato sauce.

My Notes:

About Balbi:

Bodegas Balbi offers wine lovers a rich heritage of French, Italian, Spanish, American and Argentine winemaking traditions. Founded in 1930 by Italian Juan Balbi, the winery was purchased by Spanish –influenced Allied Domecq in 1992, who significantly modernized the estate. French winemakers from Calvet in Bordeaux consult each season with the Balbi winemaking team, and California's Clos du Bois winemaker Margaret Davenport advised Balbi on an extensive new barrel aging program. With careful fruit selection from Mendoza's best vineyards and growing regions, Balbi combines European and American winemaking techniques to create a unique cultural expression of Argentine fine wines.
