Gorgeous new world Cabernet. Good fruit, with loads of the blackcurrent flavours you'd expect, good weight, some spice, and creaminess from the 8 months maturation in wood. Soft tannins, and a lovely finish.
This family estate in the Pedriel district of Mendoza is run and owned by the Sottano brothers Diego, Pablo and Mauricio. It sits at 1000m altitude in the foothills of the Andes so benefiting from the warm days and cold nights typical of the region which make for well balanced and perfectly ripe grapes. The wines from this estate are rich and smooth yet maintain an elegance and balance uncommon in new world wines.
