Achaval Ferrer Cabernet Sauvignon 2014, Mendoza Argentina 

My Rating 89 Points.   

Price $24. 


TGIF. This week my Cabernet fix is an Argentinian delight.

Dirty ruby in color with a short brick rim.

Strong nose of blackberries, cherries, plums, herbs, earth, pine, toasted oak, leather, licorice, vanilla, vegetables, vinegar, chocolates, coffee and peppercorn.

Medium bodied and smooth, with medium plus acidity and long legs.

Extra dry on the palate with cherries, plums, blueberries, blackberries, vanilla, oak, licorice, spices, chocolates, vegetables, earth, tobacco, beef jerky and peppercorn.

Medium plus on the finish with soft tannins and raspberries.

This is a great Great Argentinian Cabernet. Smooth, luxurious, almost balanced, and needs a couple of years in the bottle to mature. Shows nice acidity, complexity and earthiness.

Enjoyable by itself or with food, and would pair nicely with a nice piece of steak.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from Mendoza, unfined and Unfiltered. Needs at least an hour to open up properly.

14.5% alcohol by volume.
