Wine Style Guide
Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
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.
Intense red color. Very good concentration on the nose,with aromas of blackberry and cassis. Juicy and fruity on the palate, with hints of coffee and leather given by the oak. Full bodied, silky tannins and long finish.
"The 2012 Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon grown at Lujan de Cuyo shows much more restraint than the Malbec, with subtle aromas of cedar wood, incense and a hint of leather intermixed with the crunchy red and black fruit while the palate displays more dusty-tannins with a pungent sapid sensation that I associate with Cabernet Sauvignon. This is very good value."
The Wine Advocate
"Bright ruby-red. Slightly medicinal aromas of cassis, plum, licorice, mocha, menthol and bitter chocolate. Began juicy and youthfully imploded, showing no easy sweetness to the flavors of dark berries, licorice and herbs, but this is ultimately denser and finer-grained, if tighter, than the Malbec Reserva. Finishes with a serious dusting of youthful tannins.

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

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,...
