This full-bodied, single vineyard Argentine red wine offers incredible depth, concentration and power. Black fruit and juicy goodness. High alcohol at 15%, though it doesn't taste hot.

Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A single-vineyard Uco Valley Cab Sauv from Mendoza region in Argentina. Fragrant nose with strawberry & raspberry, then a tangy berry palate with spicy cinnamon and touches of cloves, mint, cedar, vanilla and a slight vegetal touch. Full-bodied with good acidity and a long spicy finish. Delicious! Great gift for a Cab-lover
Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Deep ruby; smooth; medium+ acidity; full-bodied. Highly concentrated dark fruit, licorice, herbal, oak, vanilla, cloves. The length is medium on a warm spice finish. Tough sell for me at $25 from Argentina. BBQ wine.
Tasted: May 2015
The vines for this robust Argentine Cabernet are planted in the foothills of the Andes. Finishes with dark fruit and toasty oak. - Community Wine Reviews
