Our Argentina Cabernet Sauvignon expresses the deep, rich dark berry fruit notes that are classic hallmarks of the variety, complemented nicely by slight herbal characteristics. Firm tannins and oak aging merge to add complex layers of vanilla, clove and black pepper to the Cabernet wine. Because of the intensity of the sun and the dramatic cool temperature shifts at night, both qualities that come from high elevation vineyards, our Cabernet Sauvignon grapes develop thicker skins with wonderfully concentrated aromas and riper, softer tannins. Our high-elevation Alamos Cabernet is flavorful and powerful while remaining elegant and round with an appealingly light, velvety-smooth mouthfeel, which sets our Argentine wine varietals apart from other new world wine regions.

Dark red-ruby. Aromas of cassis and licorice are riper than those of the 2018 Malbec but still show an herbal element. A step up in texture and sweetness as well but still a bit lean, with its black fruit, fresh herb and menthol flavors framed by firm-edged acidity. Ultimately a bit simple but easy to drink.
