Aromas of tanned leather and cigar box on the nose and palate of this full-bodied, balanced, smooth Argentine Cabernet Franc. Perfect for lamb with rosemary.

|Andrea Shapiro - Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Wow, this is a big one. From Alta Vista - Pronounced black cherries, roasted red peppers, fresh herbs and earthy stones. Flavours show dry raspberries, strawberries, plums, leather and smoke. Woody, and spicy. Medium plus acidity, grippy polished tannins and a chewy herbal touch at the back. Very nice! Pair with roasted pork tenderloin and eggplant. 91 points - tasted November 2018
|Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
This is pretty fun wine, a big Cab Franc from Argentina. The traditional bell pepper works well here, along with cherries, plums, dried fruit, saddle leather, cedar, spice, grilled herb. This would pair well with roasted or stewed meats. 90 Points.
|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Lovely! Aromas of plum, blackberry, leather, herbs and black pepper. Full bodied, lots of blackberry and peppery spice on the palate. Medium + bodied, med-high acidity, and quite fruit forward on the palate, with more herbaceous and spicy notes on the finish. Enjoy with grilled pork.
|Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Black fruit and smoke on the nose with blackberry, spice and dried herbs on the palate. Tannins are a bit chewy. Tasted November 2018.
|Alta Vista Premium 2016 Cabernet Franc is great value under $20. From the Mendoza win region, this is a fresh Cab Franc with red plum, red berry, vanilla spice and great acidity for food. Tannins are quite firm. Pair with grilled pork chops. - Community Wine Reviews|
