Combining grapes from the Uco Valley and Luján de Cuyo, Achaval Ferrer bottled this Cabernet Sauvignon after aging it for 12 months in used French barrels. Deep red with a purple sheen. The nose offers licorice, black currant and white pepper. Firm, grippy tannins set off the core of a fruit-forward palate and a lengthy, smoky finish. Will grow more well-rounded with time. (Joaquín Hidalgo, Vinous, October 2020)

Blue and red fruited palate. Polished and a nice price.

Blackberry cobbler with Swiss cheese! Mint breath, and Rosemary dough. Why are Mendoza cabs so good? They run rings around the Malbecs more often than not. The presumption that each country needs its own varietal to give it meaning, is a misnomer. Sometimes a varietal has so calculatingly written itself into our genetics by rewiring our neural pathways, that any permutation thereof is an epiphany! Abrigado, cabbie, you little virus! Dark, and backberrylicoricious! Mintcurrantacular! A fun wine with a well of shadows! Like Catena, it's cabs take the crown!

So smooth. A subtle juice flavor with floral notes, currants and black pepper
