Single Vineyard Cab from the best block of an 80-year old pergola style Cabernet vineyard planted with original vines.
Black and red fruit on the nose with cherry, bell pepper, and subtle hints of coffee from the barrel fully integrated. In the mouth, it is wide and exhibits good complexity and round tannins. It is an elegant and robust wine with a long finish.
Pair with a juicy steak or pasta bolognese.
This is an old, balanced, traditional vineyard that yields wines with very good depth and natural balance. There is perfect ripeness here and a notable absence of those green pepper aromas that often mask the personality of many Cabernets. These old vines yield very concentrated juice and it shows in the tannins and acidity, which show in perfect harmony.The Wine Advocate December 2016
Grown in the heat of the Luján de Cuyo DO, Agrelo’s cabernets tend to be juicy, with soft tannins, and, at their best, have good acidity to give them energy. Casarena’s top cabernet, from 90-year-old vines, shares that style, its sweet fruit gaining seductive complexity from notes of herbs and flowers. Accessible now if poured with something as meaty as braised short ribs, it has a long life ahead.Wine & Spirits June 2018
