Trapiche ‘Broquel’ Mendoza Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Cabernet Sauvignon from Argentina
Review Date : 15-Dec-2015
Dark, deep, black-hued ruby-red colour with some garnet on the edge. The nose is softly concentrated and rounded with mellow and integrated aromas of blackcurrants, cassis, mint herbs and green olives, along with blackcurrant leaf elements. Medium-full bodied, the palate is soft-textured and rounded with a positive core, showing integrated flavours of blackcurrants, cassis liqueur, olives and herbs, along with hints of oak. The mouthfeel is smooth and flowing with light, supple tannins and integrated acidity. The wine is driven by some alcohol power, leading to a soft, dry-textured finish. This is a soft and gently layered Cabernet Sauvignon with blackcurrant and herb flavours and a supple, mellow palate with alcohol drive. Match with roast beef, lamb and venison over the next 4 years. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the ‘Las Palmas’ vineyard, Maipu, vines over 25 y.o., hand-picked and fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 15 months in French and American oak barrels. 16.5/20 Dec 2015 RRP $20.99
