Winemaker's Notes

"Rich in espresso and roasted nut aromas, this big cabernet has strong, youful tannins and pungent acidity. A super value for an Argentina asado."
-Wines & Spirits

The grapes are sourced from the 32 year old vineyards in the Maipu district of Mendoza about 2,600 feet above sea-level. Hand-tended and hand-harvested, the Rutini family's high altitude vineyards provide the foundation for Trumpeter. Destemmed for a 15 day fermentation and maceration. Ageing takes place for 7 months in 50% new French oak and 50% in second and third use American oak. 100% malolactic fermentation.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Juicy berry fruit aromas lead into concentrated flavors of raspberries and blackberries. Well-balanced with firm tannins. Hints of vanilla, cocoa and sweet oak appear on the finish.

I was very excited to open this wine given the other comments about it and the 90 pt rating. What a disappointment. This didn't have the strong flavor of a cab. It was weak and wasn't any better than what I can find at Trader Joe's for $2 bucks.

Not know to me for it's wonderful cabernet, this cab comes from Argentina and it a delightful surprise. Full of fruit and very mellow. Light tannins and weaker structure could come from it's age, a 2006 and very young for a cab. Overall, wonderful wine for the price (9 to 12 dollars) and good for everyday.

(ahr-jen-TEE-nah) Now fifth in the world for wine production, Argentina is catching up in the quality wine sector.

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,...
