Well integrated tannins with a silky lasting finish, med-full bodied wine. Excellent with cheese, olives and steak. By far the best wine I had in the Mendoza region.
In seven months In Argentina, I tried nothing comparable to Señor Carmelo's Cab. I feel horribly guilty, because I drank up a bottle meant for sharing with My friend, restaurateur Christophe Gourdain, all by myself. Perfectly balanced & complex, the blackcurrant is enlivened by subtle mentholated typicity. I'll have to find a few bottles to share & to put away.
Typical cabernet aromas, blackcurrants with a touch of woody spice. In the mouth it shows a charming rustic quality, loads of herby notes, with a black olive minerality. Lovely smooth tannins, v good length. A really delightful wine.
I recently tasted this wine, its really smooth in mouth, with correct tannins. I had to deal with a deffected cork ( maybe a wrong conservation ) but i won finally. The rustic quality doesnt work for me, i preferred for this price something like Navarro Correo Alegoria Cabernet 2005, with more complexity.
Four and a half glasses
Tasted May 2008, this wine was showing beautifully. Soft, finely integrated tannins offered exceptional structure to this silky, med-full bodied wine. Flavors of currant and cherry fruit were still powerful, with secondary aromas yet to develop. Bright red, with a structured and lasting finish.
