Cabernet lovers will ‘Rejoice’ when realizing their favorite varietal gets even better with the soft touch of Malbec.
This is the asado (BBQ for us Americans) wine you have been searching for! Deep blackcurrant and oak aromas with opaque red/purple color. Flavors of black cherry liqueur, red currants, and a touch of black tea. Lush without seeming heavy, the wine seems to unfold in layers, keeping the palate excited well past the lengthy finish. Plenty of tannin for aging without any harsh astringency.
Pairs well with most fine food presentations like duck in a fruit sauce, leg of lamb persillade, osso buco, and even a simple filet mignon.
Last, but not least, the 2014 Júbilo is a blend of Malbec with 40% Cabernet Sauvignon from 12-year-old vines in their Vista Flores estate vineyards that matured in barrels for 18 months. There is a little more new oak here, and the effect of the aging is more noticeable than in their other wines. The blend also makes the nose more predictable and mainstream. However, it's very good at what it is, slightly more international with the dusty, serious tannins of the Cabernet. This should improve in bottle.The Wine Advocate December 2016
Bright ruby-red. Aromas of cassis, black cherry and licorice complemented by sexy coffee and chocolate oak tones. Rich, plush, savory and deep; a lovely 2014 with real concentration and subtle salty restraint. The wine's salinity and strong oakiness are nicely supported by fruit extract. In fact, this blend's enticing early sweetness gives it terrific drinkability already.Vinous March 2016
This Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon blend opens with blueberry and currant aromas that hint at the exotic. A flush racy palate is high in acid and a touch abrasive. Plum and currant flavors are not what you'd call cushioned, while this ends with hard edgy tannins and a reprise of scouring acidity. In terms of aging, this will last a long time.Wine Enthusiast February 2017
