Mature, fresh, savoury.
This mature Cabernet is made from vines planted in 1960 at Finca La Urquiza at 1700MASL in the Calchaqui Valley in Salta's Cafayate, a region known for its high sun exposure, low humidity and broad thermal amplitude. It was aged in French oak for 15 months prior to bottling and six months in bottle post.
Smoked red plums, ribena, menthol, baking spices, molasses, soy sauce and dried herbal aromas are expressed on the nose. The palate mimics the nose, it has good freshness still and savoury and umami flavours develop in the mouth; toasted spice, dried fruits, cigarbox, herbs and espresso flavours trail across the palate.
