Outer quote mark The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Mendoza is a blend of grapes from Luján de Cuyo and the Uco Valley that spent 12 months aging in used barrels. Garnet red in color, the aromas feature redcurrant jam with hints of mint and pepper and a touch of sour cherry against an oaky backdrop. Intense in the mouth with gentle tannins, the lively freshness is contained by the good body but ensures that proceedings stay frisky. The lovely, classical finish is packed with fruit.

K&L Notes

Where can one find mountain-grown Cabernet for a great price? In Mendoza, Argentina, where Achaval Ferrer sources its fruit from mineral-rich mountain soils, resulting in nuanced and beautifully balanced flavors. Bordeaux estates have their eyes on Mendoza. The conditions and Cabernet-friendly climate have shown tremendous and cost-effective results, as evident here in this 2018 Achaval Ferrer Cab, with juicy black fruits, hints of earth and tobacco, and a full-bodied finish. We’d be hard pressed to find a Cabernet this polished and profound at this price locally. Ferrer is a widely respected red wine producer, known for its old-school approach to new-world winemaking. Their wines are textbook in style and varietally correct, as is clear from the first sip of the 2018 Cabernet.
