2010 Finca Decero "Remolinos Vineyard" Cabernet Sauvignon Mendoza
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon - Remolinos Vineyard is aged in new French barriques (30% new) for 14 months. It offers a refined tobacco and sous-bois scented bouquet that nods towards the Old World. The palate is medium-bodied, with dusty blackberry fruit, bold earthy tannins and a delightful, foursquare finish that you would expect to find on the Left Bank. Fortunately, there is no Left Bank price to contend with! Excellent. Drink now-2017. (NM)

Dark red-ruby. Musky redcurrant, mocha and chocolate truffle on the rather oaky nose. Sound acidity gives shape and verve to the flavors of currant, plum, truffle and spices. Finishes with slightly dusty tannins and hints of menthol and minerals. I'd wait a year before pulling the cork.
Ripe yet firm, with full tannins framing the jammy cherry and cassis notes, featuring lingering hints of herb and tobacco. Drink now. (Web-2013)
Finca Decero is a relatively new project, but one that has already earned some glowing press, including the aforementioned review from Neal Martin as well as some praise from Jancis Robinson. This range of wines is very polished, with the cab showing very tasty red and dark fruits, well integrated oak and an admirable overall sense of balance.
