JS 92

2013 Decero Cabernet Sauvignon has a flavor profile of both cassis and black fruits, a fine backbone of acidity leading it more towards elegance than opulence. Seductive tannins, more silky than those of the 2010 and 2012 vintages, provide the perfect balance and structure for this wine. Great food matching and cellaring potential.

Located at 3500 feet, in the renowned Mendoza appellation of Agrelo, our one-of-a-kind Remolinos Vineyard takes its name from ‘remolinos’ – whirlwinds which keep the grapes dry and in perfect condition before being handpicked each vintage.

Soils: Sandy clay loams over gravels.

Yield: 3.5–4.0 tons per acre.

Canopy: Limited leaf plucking of east facing canopy; cluster thinning to 1-2 clusters per shoot.

Handling: Gravity fed.

Maceration: 25-30 days total maceration:- 3-7 days cold soak; 10 days fermentation in small wide stainless steel tanks at 82°F - 86°F. 15-18 days extended maceration.

Maturation: Gently basket pressed before going into French oak barrels (30% new) for MLF and 14 months maturation.


"A full-bodied wine with ultra-fine tannins and a caressing finish. Lots of fruit yet reserved, balanced and stylish. Well-made Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink or hold." -Rated 92, James Suckling
