Cabernet Sauvignon

The Full Review

This is a balanced, well-priced Cabernet from a highly-regarded winery in Mendoza Argentina's Uco Valley. The vineyard sites are plated at a very high elevation (roughly 4,000 feet), resulting in wines that have pronounced aromas, flavors, and freshness. The color is dark garnet, and aromas include black cherries, cocoa powder, nutmeg, and a hint of black pepper. The texture is very smooth, fresh, and palate-coating, with lively tannins. At $19, it's a great everyday wine for someone who enjoys New World Cabernet but prefers to save the $50+ bottles for special occasions.
