L.A. Cetto Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 Wine Review
Fleshy ripe black and purple plum aromas with some blueberry jam. The palate is ultra-smooth and delicious with more dark fruit flavours. This is an absolutely incredible wine for the price point. Pair with combination pizza, spaghetti and meatballs or cold cuts. This L.A. Cetto Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 was reviewed by January 19, 2013 Natalie MacLean

Opinions about wine differ greatly as the experience is subjective. You may find it helpful to compare this critical evaluation of the wine with mine as well as your own:
Carla rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review: A pleasure for a great price. Fruity and medium bodied. We enjoyed it with homemade guacamole and several cheeses. It paired especially well with Gorgonzola making it taste quite sweet. It was a nice surprise. I easily imagined sipping it on a hot Mexican night.
Sarah Emilson rated this wine as 81/100 with the following review: Much lighter in ruby colour than expected from a young Cabernet Sauvignon. This "lightness" travelled on through to the nose and palate. Fairly low in aroma, noting: red currants, strawberries, cherries, dirt, butterscotch and an herbal characteristic which seemed like a combination of dill, cilantro and bay leaf. A dry wine, with medium+acid, low+body, medium-tannins, medium+alcohol, and [again] not a lot coming through on flavours: cherries, red currants, cranberries, green pepper, smoke and wet earth; ending short and bitter. This is definitly not a typical Cabernet Sauvignon but worth the try. This wine does not need any additional aging nor would it benefit from doing so; drink now. A regional food pairing would work well here: Mexican beef/pork dishes with lots of ingredients and flavours (e.g. Mole, tacos, enchiladas). Fried foods, beef jerky and cured game could also work.
One of the top 5 best values in Cabernet Sauvignon priced around $12. Domaine L.A. Cetto is unquestionably the most famous producer in Mexico. In 1926, Don Angelo Cetto, of Italian origin, settled in the country. The estate is well established in the celebrated Guadalupe Valley, which enjoys a particularly favorable climate for viniculture: the Pacific’s cold winds keep the nights cool, while the days are extremely hot. The result is a juicy cabernet sauvignon, very open, with aromas of ripe fruit and surprising balance on the palate, demonstrating once again the talents of Cetto’s winemaker. Very pleasant. Best between 2011-2015. Score: 3½ (out of 5) Source: fidelesdebacchus.com, undated
