- Finca Decero Cabernet Remolinos Mendoza 2013 Product #30537 (In Stock)
There's an awful lot going on here for an under $20 Cabernet Sauvignon. The aromas are lush with generous doses of blackcurrant, black cherry, plum and chocolate. It's lush on the palate, too, with layers of rich fruit, dark chocolate, spice, smoke, and more. So far, so good - but things get really exciting on the finish where the flavors really fan out and coat your mouth with juicy blackberry, creamy chocolate, black raspberry, and cassis flavors that linger long and sweet and pure. The fruity acidity keeps the wine fresh while fine, dusty, tannins give the wine heft and the potential to get even better over the next few years. A superb value in Napa-style Cabernet that just happens to come from Mendoza!
“A full-bodied wine with ultra-fine tannin and a caressing finish. Lots of fruit yet reserved, balanced and stylish. Well-made cabernet sauvignon. Drink or hold.” James Suckling 92 points
“Finca Decero, the Agrelo estate planted in the year 2000, keeps producing prodigious examples from the region. Polished, very drinkable wines that reflect place and vintage. The nose of the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Remolinos Vineyard was full of cherries in liqueur and jammy strawberries with a pinch of sweet spices. There is only a hint of raspberry leaf in the palate which is polished by very fine tannins and good consistency to stand up to empanadas and lighter food, like the proverbial lamb chops. 120,000 bottles produced.”Wine Advocate 89 points
