2017 Terrazas de los Andes Grand Cabernet Sauvignon, Mendoza, Argentina (750ml)
Very aromatic with currant, floral and crushed-stone character, following through to a full body with very tight tannins and a balsamic undertone. Savory, so complex and inviting. Unique cabernet. So good now. Drink now, but will improve with age.

This Mendoza Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of fruit from two estates: gravelly Los Aromos in Luján de Cuyo and sandy-loam Paraje Altamira in the Uco Valley. Classic Cabernet aromas with deep cassis notes edged with blackcurrant leaf, herbs, spice and some brighter red fruit hints. The layered palate has good purity of black fruit, with a coffee-mocha edge, liquourice and anise spice, and firm but fine tannins from 12 months in French oak. Already displaying a certain degree of elegance but give it more time to evolve. Drinking Window 2021 - 2030.
