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.
The 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon Single Vineyard Owen, from Agrelo, Lujan de Cuyo, is a third barrel-fermented, but 100% was aged in varied-use barrels. The nose presents dark and red fruit notes alongside blackcurrant, blackberry, pepper and ash hints. Intense and plush with fruity flavor and a layer of pyrazines, the palate is compact with slightly reactive tannins but develops good depth. A very interesting, Napa Valley-style wine with the twist of a fruity finish.Vinous January 2023
