The nose is full of ripe black fruits with subtle notes of clove, black pepper, and sweet tobacco. On the palate, flavors of black raspberries and cassis yield to more subtle notes of cedar, vanilla, and sweet spice. The fine-grained tannins lend structure to the wine, which has a soft, lingering finish.
"The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is mostly from Medrano, Junin and Barrancas in east Mendoza with 10% grapes from the Uco Valley fermented together in stainless steel and cement vats, so the Uco part is harvested quite early for the zone. It has a serious, clean and focused nose with perfectly ripened fruit, berries and cherries plus a hint of spices and a notable absence of green notes, perhaps a hint of mint that add freshness. The palate is polished, revealing some dusty tannins with very good balance. " -Rated 90, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
