Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
Alcohol By Volume: 14.7%
Alcohol By Volume Guide
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
Made from 100% Malbec. The wine is fermented in French oak barrels for two years, with an additional year in bottle prior to release.
"The fruit for the 2006 Cadus Malbec was sourced from Lujan de Cuyo and Alto Agrelo with the wine spending 24 months in new French oak. It offers up a classy nose of pain grille, pencil lead, Asian spices, incense, lavender, espresso, and black cherry. On the palate it is elegant with some underlying structure, excellent volume, and a lengthy, fruit-filled finish. It will be at its best from 2013 to 2021."
