Zolo Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

The highest altitude vineyards in the world are those in Mendoza, Argentina, at the foothills of the Andes. This Zolo Cabernet Sauvignon is from vineyards 3000 feet above sea level and has been aged for 10 months in new French oak barrels. Zolo is a line of Argentine wines produced by Fincas Patagonicas that are making a huge splash in the American market with its smart labels and finely made wines. This Cabernet exhibits a heady nose of ripe cherry and plums, and just a hint of cedar. On the palate, there is black fruit, firm tannins, and toasted vanilla.

Jammy Cab Lover? This wine is for you! The ZOLO Cabernet Sauvignon is very dark and enticing in the glass with aromas of rich blackberry jam or preserves. Upon tasting the fruit is dark and concentrated, with smooth tannins on the finish. Reminiscent of the Layer Cake styles of wine - as I said, jammy lovers should snatch up this wine for their cellars!

A wonderful Cabernet from Argentina - at an excellent price. With its complexity and smoothness, this wine would easily compete with wines three or four times its price. A great addition to any Cabernet-lover's cellar!

Delicious but make sure to drink in one sitting. This wine goes bad very quickly
