Maipe Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2010

External Review:

This large winery in Mendoza, Argentina makes numerous wines under the Maipe, Chakana and Cueva de las Manos labels. Almost all of them represent good values. The 2013 Maipe Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, primarily aged 12 months in French oak, although about one-third of the fruit is aged in concrete. This lush wine is a terrific value in Cabernet Sauvignon, but unfortunately, only 3,000 cases are available in America. Its deep ruby color is accompanied by uncomplicated notes of blackcurrants, licorice and a touch of vanilla. Medium-bodied, straightforward, delicious and surprisingly concentrated for a wine in this price range, it should drink well for 3–6 years. It is not easy to find Cabernet Sauvignon for under $25 a bottle at this quality level, but this 2013 delivers.

Spicy, herbal plum and berry aromas are a bit rubbery and offer a sweet hint of cinnamon powder. This is deep and ripe on the palate, with rooty flavors of blackberry, fig and baking spices. Lasting rooty nuances blend with cocoa notes and mild heat on the finish.

This Cabernet balances fleshy cassis and plum notes with chewy tannins and hints of tobacco and olive paste. Drink now.

Made from 100% hand-harvested Cabernet Sauvignon, two-thirds of the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve spent 12 months in French oak and one-third in concrete. It is a classic Mendoza Cabernet Sauvignon from alluvial soils. Maipe owns significant acreage in two main vineyards, Agrelo and Alta Mira. Classic notes of creme de cassis, cedarwood and vanillin are accompanied by a wine with a beautiful, full-bodied texture, deep, rich, concentrated flavors and a long finish. For $15.00, it is impossible to find a Cabernet Sauvignon this good from anywhere else in the world.
