Perdriel terroir and precision winemaking make this one of Argentina’s best Cabs.
Notes of cassis, red and black pepper, and spices. There are beautiful mineral notes and integrated oak characteristics such as vanilla, caramel, and smoke. The mature and soft tannins are round with a fresh acidity. Concentrated, balanced, and full-flavored, it displays both elegance and freshness.
Pairs well with grilled meats such as chicken, pork and beef. Try with sharp cheeses, wild mushrooms or grilled vegetables.
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from their Finca Los Andes vineyard planted ungrafted in Perdriel in 1998 at 1,050 meters in altitude. It was harvested during the second half of April in a cooler and wetter year. This 2016 is spicy and fresh, not a style of concentrated and tannic Cabernet, more elegant than structured. According to Roberto de la Mota, the character comes from clone 337, which is the one used to plant this vineyard. There is good definition, and it's clean.The Wine Advocate June 2018
Dark ruby. Vibrant nose combines cassis, blackberry, bitter chocolate, violet and minerals. Quite dry and tightly wound; more savory and backward than the '15, conveying a strong soil-driven rocky character. This classic Cabernet is distinctly folded in on itself and needs cellaring. It may yet merit an even higher rating.Vinous July 2018
Quite a bold, tannic wine with a lot of walnut and blackcurrant character. The finish is a bit light but well balanced.James Suckling April 2018
