Jean Bousquet Cabernet Organic 06 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes :Dark reddish purple color intense nose of red berry fruit mixed with sweet spice. It is elegant in style, with lots of mineral, cherry and currant fruit. Bright acidity keeps it refreshing through the finish. The palate is packed with ripe, concentrated fruit flavors with notes of tobacco and black pepper. Has a long and structured finish with fine tannins. The wine combines well with pasta dishes, red meat, and sauces. This is brilliant Cabernet offering incredible quality at such a value driven price

Domaine Jean Bousquet is an organic winery in Topungato, in the foothills of the Andes Mountains in Mendoza, Argentina. Jean Bousquet was already a successful winemaker from Carcassonne in the south of France in 1990 when he decided to relocate to Mendoza, and went on an extensive search for the ideal vineyard location. In 1997, he finally established himself in Topungato, attracted by its high altitudes (for superior grape balance), climate and rich soils. The wines are available in a line of Premium Varietals (includes Malbec, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Torrontes and a Malbec/Cab rosé), as well as Reservas, Grande Reservas and a sweet, late harvest Malbec dessert wine.  Read less

Very fruity, nice finish. Excellent with churasco.



Tasting Notes:

You'll find layers of refreshing redcurrant fruits, intertwined with smoky notes from light oak ageing. Acidity and tannins - important components in a well made wine - are perfectly balanced and the result is an enormously satisfying mouthful of wine. Just the sort of wine I could easily drink a glass or two of with an old fashioned ploughman's lunch.
