Achaval-Ferrer Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
James Suckling: "Currants and dried flowers with hints of rose bush, follow through to a medium body, medium-chewy tannins and a juicy finish with ripe fruit. Drink and enjoy. Why wait?" Mar 2019
Winery: "Red-ruby. Plum and tobacco on the nose and palate. Big Old World with a truffley nuance and an amazing peppery acidity to frame and carry the red fruit flavors. The finish is subtle and persistent, with refined dusty tannins. Serving temperature between 61-64 degrees. We strongly recommend decanting this wine at least an hour before drinking.
An accurate reflection of its variety, Cabernet Mendoza delivers a sharp and direct message where the fruit overcomes the mineral nuances. Originating from small patches of vineyards located in the first area in Mendoza, this wine that has very little production highlights a juicy texture filled with black and red fruitiness. Far from abstractions it allows for a lovely walk toward that of pleasure."
