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.
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.
