Winemaker Notes

Deep bright ruby color with perfumed aromas of cassis, blackcurrants, redcurrants along with hints of roasted coffee beans and tobacco and a touch of fresh mint and fresh herbs. The complex aromas are echoed on the palate with layers of fruit and spices coming on and on. Sweet on the entry with round tannins, this full bodied wine shows a lively and harmonious acidity that leads to a fresh and pure finish.

Blend: 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Merlot.

James Suckling
Lots of tobacco, berry and mushroom character here. Full body, tight and chewy tannins, and a savory finish. This is structured. Vibrant and beautiful. Drink in 2019.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Susana Balbo Signature Cabernet Sauvignon, produced from Los Árboles in the district of Tunuyán in the Uco Valley, is sourced from a cool year, and has an austere, strict profile. The oak in unnoticeable, nicely folded into the wine, and the palate is ultra-sleek, polished and elegant, with very fine tannins, nice acidity, and a subtle minerality providing freshness and length. The balsamic, herbal character grows in the glass, where the wine feels fresher and fresher. This is a great vintage for this bottling.

Susana became the first female enologist in Argentina after graduating with honors from Don Bosco University in Mendoza in 1981. Due to the male-dominated industry in Mendoza, her first job took her north to Salta where she changed Argentine wine history with her first vintage of premium Torrontés. Susana continually seeks innovative ways to enhance her winemaking, from experimenting with barrel volumes (160L through 6,500L) to testing wild vs cultured yeasts. For premium wine production, Susana chooses concrete eggs for fermenting vessels. The egg's porous concrete breathes like oak yet allows the wine to develop as if it were made in stainless steel. The resulting wine has a pure expression of fruit with a richer, more complex mouthfeel. In 2011 and 2012, Susana's son Jose and daughter Ana joined the winery to help build SBW to where it is today. Jose helps Susana as the winery's head of R&D alongside his role as Exportation Manager. Ana is SBW's Marketing Manager as well as General Manager of the winery restaurant Osadía de Crear. Susana continuously seeks uncharted territory in the wine world to see what limits can be tested. Most recently, Susana crafted Argentina's first Barrel Fermented Torrontes. It's a wine that is not only the first of its kind, but harvested from a previously unproven terroir for Torrontés in the Uco Valley. The Wine Advocate's Luis Gutierrez calls it one of the "10 Argentine Wines to Drink Before You Die".

Uco Valley Wine

Mendoza, Argentina

View all products

With a winning combination of cool weather, high elevation and well-draining alluvial soils, it is no surprise that Mendoza’s Uco Valley is one of the most exciting up-and-coming wine regions in Argentina. Healthy, easy-to-manage vines produce low yields of high-quality fruit, which in turn create flavorful, full-bodied wines with generous acidity.

This is the source of some of the best Malbec in Mendoza, which can range from value-priced to ultra-premium. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Chardonnay also perform well here.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
