Michel Torino ‘Don David Reserve’ Cafayate Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Cabernet Sauvignon from Argentina
Review Date : 12-Feb-2014
Hand-picked fruit, fermented to 14.0% alc., 70% of the wine aged 12 months in American and French oak. Very dark, near impenetrable black-red colour with ruby-garnet hues on rim. The bouquet is tightly bound and a little shy, showing pure blackcurrant, cassis, olive and dark herb aromas, lifted by some oak notes. Medium-full bodied, classical blackcurrant varietal fruit flavours are the feature on palate, the fruit poised with fine-grained, powdery tannins and fresh, lacy acidity in support. The freshness and vibrancy carry the flavours to a lingering finish with interwoven fruit flavours of currants and herbs. This is an elegant and classical expression of Cabernet Sauvignon with sweet fruit and fine structure. Match with roast lamb or serve with hard cheeses over the next 5-6+ years. 17.5+/20 Feb 2014 RRP $17.99
