Even if not in my favorite style, this is the type of thing that put Lujan de cuyo and by extension, Argentina on the map in the first place. I like the lovely cedar and blackberry fruit, as well as the concentration and balance. Again, it's a very good Cabernet and it's important to try something like this before moving on to a more progressive style that doesn't try obsessively to emulate the medoc.

Sattes, glänzendes Rubin. Brombeerkonfitüre und schwarze Kirschen in schöner Harmonie, auch Edelhölzer und etwas kubanischer Tabak. Weicher Auftakt von gutem Fluss, abgelöst von einer kräftigen Cabernet-Aromatik, die Aromatik der Nase bestätigt sich, leicht körnige Tanninstruktur; charaktervolles Finale, mit einer rassigen Frischenote unterlegt.

The 2011 Alamos Cabernet Sauvignon is aged in the same manner as the Chardonnay. It has an attractive bouquet of red currant, blackberry and cassis that is well-defined. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins on the entry. This is a more reserved take on Cabernet with an Old World sensibility, but it has superb earthiness and an almost Bordeaux-like classicism on the finish. This is excellent. Drink now-2017. Mocha, game and spice lead off in this rich red, with ripe black cherry concentrate and cassis carrying the mineral-tinged finish. Drink now. 15,000 cases imported. -NW

The 2010 Catena Cabernet Sauvignon undergoes a five-day cold maceration and is raised for 12 to 14 months in barrel: first, second and third fill. It is a blend of four vineyards and is blended with 3% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. It has a Bordeaux-like bouquet of blackberry, bilberry, graphite and dry tobacco that is well-defined and classic in style. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins. There is a palpable sense of tension to this Cabernet, which exhibits great precision on the spicy, edgy finish. Full of personality, this comes highly recommended. Drink now-2017. Big and burly, with a semi- syrupy nose that brings berry jam, molasses, shoe polish and crusty, baked berry aromas. But don't dismiss this Cab as overripe and over the top; it is complete and balanced, with good acidity pushing black fruit, chocolate, clove and herb flavors to their maximum expression. And it dials it in on the finish, where cola and coffee notes are just right. Drink now thr...

Dunkles Rubin. Schwarzbeerige Nase, an Brombeeren erinnernd, auch etwas Edelhölzer und balsamische Noten. Im Gaumen von viel reifer, schwarzer Frucht geprägt, Heidelbeeren, eine Spur Tabak auch und Vanille; geschmeidig und voll, mittellanges Finale.

Purpurrot, leicht aufgehellter Rand. Schwarze Kirschen, etwas Minze, feine florale Noten und eine exotische Würze im offenen Bouquet. Kompakte Gaumenaromatik, an Preiselbeeren und Brombeeren erinnernd, eine pikante Würznote, sanfte Tannine; zartbitteres Finale, das von einer feinen Tabaknote begleitet ist.

The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon spent nine months in French and American oak. Purple-colored, it reveals aromas of cedar, spice box, cassis, and black currant. On the palate it is medium-bodied with ample savory fruit, good depth, and a medium-long finish. Drink it over the next 2ndash;3 years.

Kräftiges Rubinrot, fast purpurn. Fein parfümiertes Bouquet im schwarzbeerigen Bereich, untermalt von etwas Unterholznoten und viel dunkler Schokolade. Mundfüllend und von einer guten Fruchtsüsse geprägter Gaumen, Brombeeren und Heidelbeeren, auch etwas Baumnuss und Tabaknoten; sanfte, saftige Tanninstruktur, gut konzentriertes, erfrischendes Finale.

Winemaker's Notes:

Sattes, glänzendes Rubin. Brombeerkonfitüre und schwarze Kirschen in schöner Harmonie, auch Edelhölzer und etwas kubanischer Tabak. Weicher Auftakt von gutem Fluss, abgelöst von einer kräftigen Cabernet-Aromatik, die Aromatik der Nase bestätigt sich, leicht körnige Tanninstruktur; charaktervolles Finale, mit einer rassigen Frischenote unterlegt.
