This Argentina Cabernet Sauvignon expresses the deep, rich dark berry fruit notes that are classic hallmarks of the variety, complemented nicely by slight herbal characteristics. Firm tannins and oak aging merge to add complex layers of vanilla, clove and black pepper to the Cabernet wine. Because of the intensity of the sun and the dramatic cool temperature shifts at night, both qualities that come from high elevation vineyards, our Cabernet Sauvignon grapes develop thicker skins with wonderfully concentrated aromas and riper, softer tannins. Our high-elevation Alamos Cabernet is flavorful and powerful while remaining elegant and round with an appealingly light, velvety-smooth mouthfeel, which sets our Argentine wine varietals apart from other new world wine regions.

Reviews:

"Pretty red cherries, blackcurrants, cedar, tobacco and some fresh herbs. Medium-to-full body, grainy, tight tannins and a savory, firm finish. Drink now." -Rated 91, James Suckling
