Bodega Weinert Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

Member Review by Argovino:

What do you get when you combine ungrafted French vines (almost unheard of in France!) with years of barrel age and exquisite care of experienced vintners? A flat-out stunner. The bouquet is full of the exotic perfumes of a Levantine market, with musk featuring prominently. In the mouth, it’s a basket of blackberries and black and red currants, showing lighter and darker shades by turns – a shifting prism of flavor. The finish is long yet startlingly clean. As a package, it’s the first 95-point wine on Argovino. Bravo! (AV 95, http://argovino.com/?p=742)

Founded in 1975, Bodega y Cavas de Weinert is located in Lujan de Cuyo, Argentina´s craddle for top quality wines. The  original building of 1890 of spanish colonial architecture, reminiscent of an old winery owned by the family Otero until 1920, catches the eye by its beauty, inviting those who pass by to know what it guards in its inside. Don Bernardo C. Weinert, founder and owner, could be defined as an entrepreneur. Born in a small german colony in Southern Brazil, he built his name around international transport in South America. Fascinated by the world of wine, he decided to found his own winery in Argentina with one unconditional philosophy: producing high quality wines. Before engaging in such a treat, he made an extensive study about Mendoza: its climate, soil, grapes; and came to the conclusion that Lujan de Cuyo was the perfect place for his project. After a thorough restauration work of the building acquired in 1975, he brought in the latest technology in vinification of that time and was joined by acclaimed oenologists. By then everyone believed him to be insane for facing such a treat. But time proved him to be right. After the first commercial vintage of 1976, by 1977 he produced Weinert Malbec Star 1977, a wine known and acclaimed by the world´s most prestigious tasters. Don Bernardo C. Weinert is a man whose vision for businesses is very simple: "as long as you mantain your own philosophy and keep it throughout the years, you are on the right track." Read less

Weinert is currently one of our favorite producers, mainly for their ability to intergrate Old World finesse into decidedly New World wines like this one. This Cabernet Sauvignon packs all the punch of a Napa Cab with great cassis fruit and soft vanilla oak flavors. There is something really special about the balance, too, and it elevates this bottle above the sea of great Cabs out there.

A harsh winter and later spring pushed harvest back resulting in an ageworthy & complex Cabnernet. The nose shows huge evolution with old wood, dried fruits and cigar box with cassis and tangy tannins on the palate. Like an old Bordeaux
