Maipe Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon sourced from 35-year-old vines is a saturated purple color. The nose offers up pure black currants and blackberry with some earth notes in the background. The wine is slightly austere on the palate but is likely to round out with another year or two in the bottle (not that anyone is likely to cellar this tasty effort). It is a lot of wine for the money.

Earth and fruit meld together in this luscious Argentine Cabernet. Aromas of cassis, wild mushroom and chocolate abound, and the firm tannic structure simply begs to be served with a thick juicy steak. The pride of Mendoza mdash; you will be hard pressed to find a better Cabernet at this price!

Unreal value from this winery. I am a big fan of Maipersquo;s Cueva de las Manos line of Cabernet, Malbec and Bonarda, but this under $10 a bottle Cabernet offers extraordinary value. Full-bodied, packed with blackberry, csasis and cedar flavors somewhere between a Bordeaux and a California Cabernet, Maipe hits the mark.

Fresh and open with cherry plum and roasted vanilla notes and a medium-weight finish. Drink now.

Argentinian reds are produced to be consumed young while still vibrant; Maipe has produced a Cabernet Sauvignon that captures the essence of bright fruit and spice and characterizes this delicious style. Bright fruit, vanilla, and black cherry round out this exceptionally earthy effort.
