- Sur De Los Andes Cabernet Sauvignon Gran Reserva 2010 Product #29211 (In Stock)
Wine Enthusiast had this pegged as a $38 wine, and certainly it has that level of effort and expense behind it. The 100% Cabernet Sauvignon fruit came from some of the best sites in Mendoza, all grown without fertilizers, herbicides or insecticides. The hand harvested fruit is sorted in the vineyard and then again on a modern sorting table in the winery before fermenting in tank with all natural yeast (no cultured yeast added). The wine then rests and mellows for 15 months in small French oak barrels, including 30% second use and a whopping 70% new - a luxury that makes sense for a $30+ wine but is very rare in the under $20 space. Then, perhaps the biggest luxury of all, it got another two years development in bottle to let the youthful Cabernet structure resolve and the rich, dark, fruit come to the fore.
“Layered berry and cassis aromas are a bit scratchy and gritty. This Cabernet feels saturated, pure and deep; flavors of blackberry, cassis, prune and chocolate are ripe and generous, while the finish is mildly herbal in flavor, with good length and build. Drink through 2018.” Wine Enthusiast 91 points
- Felino Vina Cobos (Paul Hobbs) Cabernet Sauvingon 2013 Product #29068 (In Stock)
As Wine Advocate says, Paul Hobbs’s “Felino label has for a number of years been synonymous with value.” Another fine vintage for this big, lush, Argentine Cabernet that’s jam-packed with black fruit, chocolate, spice, and tobacco aromas and flavors. Lush and plush and nicely concentrated, this is great with a steak or just to sip.
"This shows such beautiful fruit with currant, walnut and light chocolate character. Full body, with firm tannins and a fruity finish. Reserve and balanced. " James Suckling 91 points
