Cabernet Sauvignon from Mendoza, Argentina

The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva was also sourced from the Valle de Uco, and this year the key was how long to age a fast-ripening vintage to keep the freshness. It fermented with indigenous yeasts, and part of the wine matured in oak barrels for ten months. It has a little more volume than the Malbec, round and polished, even if it was harvested a little earlier. It has some of the tannins of the variety, but they also use a little Malbec to provide some more rounder ones. 200,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in March 2018.

89 points, Luis Gutiérrez, Wine Advocate (Issue # 237 - Jun 2018)

Some spicy floral high tones to the aromas of berries and licorice. A bit more pliant than the Reserva Malbec, offering more complex flavors of berries, tobacco, spices and herbs. This easygoing yet firm Cabernet finishes with sweet tannins and lingering fruit.
