I had this as part of a Argentinian tasting at a local wine store. This was pleasant with good fruity nose. Smooth and well-balanced, it just needs more time. For more on the tasting, please visit http://dionyshius.blogspot.com/2012/08/sd-wine-co-argentinian.html

An oddly brackish note, like raw clams, dominates the nose and persists – not a flaw, but unusual – into the mouth, where it’s joined by dark plum in a strong and enduring structure. A good match for strong-tasting meats like lamb and venison! (AV 87, http://argovino.com/?p=1248)

Polished and well-structured, this red offers fine tannins and fresh acidity supporting notes of pure cassis and black cherry puree. Spice, mineral and dark tobacco hints add range to the finish. Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, and Petit Verdot. Drink now through 2016. -NW Medium red-ruby. Aromatic, expressive nose offers blackberry, licorice, bitter chocolate and a touch of violet. Juicy and tightly wound but still pliant, with lovely energy and shape to the flavors of dark berries, dark chocolate and licorice. Finishes fresh and ripely tannic, with a youthfully medicinal quality to the lingering black fruit and licorice flavors. This very promising wine needs a few years in bottle to soften. - Stephen Tanzer 90+ Points The 2010 Collecion Cabernet Sauvignon displays darker fruit and a bit more richness. Supple, ripe, and velvety on the palate, it will offer prime drinking from 2012 to 2020.


Winemaker's Notes:

"The devastating 2010 earthquake off the coast of Chile's Maule region shook up more than the populace. Winery barrels holding the 2009 vintage were tossed about and smashed. Winemaker Baptiste Cuvelier shaped this gem from the surviving casks." - Importer
