El Esteco Calchaqui Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Cabernet Sauvignon from Argentina
Review Date : 30-Aug-2017
Dark, deep, black-hued ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is elegantly presented and well-proportioned with deep and concentrated aromas of ripe blackcurrant fruit with cassis liqueur notes, herbs, savoury green olives, and refined, pencilly oak. Full-bodied, the palate features sweetly ripe and well-concentrated flavours of blackcurrants and cassis along with subtle herb notes, nuances of savoury olives and pencilly oak. The mouthfeel is fresh, firm and vibrant with good fine-grained tannin structure and lively, lacy acidity. The flavours flow with drive and energy, leading to a sustained, elegant finish of blackcurrants and herbs. This is an elegantly proportioned and well-concentrated, classical Cabernet Sauvignon with blackcurrant and cassis fruit along with herbs, olives and pencilly oak of a fine, but firm-textured, driven palate. Serve with roast lamb, beef and venison over the next 6-8+ years. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Calchaqui Valley, fermented to 14.5% alc., the wine aged 12 months in new and seasoned American and French oak barrels. 18.5/20 Aug 2017 RRP $29.99
