Made from 40-year old vines in Cruz de Piedra, Mendoza, berry and spicy nose. Cherry and tart raspberry flavors with off spice notes. Racy tannins but approachable. Needs a big food dish. Drink now!

Found a ‘15, still mediocre, no aging benefit. Made from 40-year old vines in Cruz de Piedra, berry and spicy nose. Cherry and tart plum flavors with off spice notes. Racy tannins but approachable. Needs a big food dish. Drink now!

Very nice full bodied wine. MUCH better than their higher end label Unanimé. Go with the standard cab on this vintage from this producer.

Tried the 2016 at a tasting. Tried the ‘15 twice and thought it was mediocre at best. Made from 40-year old vines in Cruz de Piedra, berry and spicy nose. Cherry and plum flavors with spice notes. Racy tannins but approachable. Needs a big food dish. This is a drink now!!wine!!Tasting Sample.

Tried another taste, not any better. Made from 40-year old vines in Cruz de Piedra, berry and spicy nose. Cherry and plum flavors with spice notes. Rugged tannins makes it difficult to enjoy. Needs a big food dish. Pass. Tasting Sample.

Really subtle. Smooth. Not a lot of tannins. Firm, restrained, mineral tannins. Very well balanced.

Ok. This is how silly people can be. If this were Napa Cab, with a price tag of 30/bottle, the average rating would be 9.2. Great Cab. Well worth the price. Mascota vineyard is for real.
