Susana Balbo Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Member Review by Lucha Vino:

The nose has smoke, seaweed/peat bog and currant with a palate of black cherry, currant and some smokiness. There is an interesting herbal undertone. It seems a bit young and I am assuming it will get better with time. Try to decant this for at least an hour before enjoying

A multilayered bouquet with hints of orange and sage; bears complex flavors but lacks a structure to realize them fully. (AV 86, http://argovino.com/?p=249)

Elegant varietal expression with balance,cassis, blackberry flavors (90% Cab. Sauv.), masterfully blended (note Pedro Marchevsky's influence here) with 5% Merlot and 5% Malbec. Some oak treatment that lends the sturdy Cabernet some structure, though not cloying or meddlesome, with loud, fake vanilla. This is artisan wine at a bargain, week-night red price.

Loved it, received it as a gift. Agree went great with grilled steak. Heavy on the tanins throughout. Drank it over a 2-3 hour period. Ruby purple color, peppery and fruity; raisin detected. Still great in 2011, interesting to see how much longer it will keep. Wish I had more....

A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from Mendoza in Argentina. 2010 Susana Balbo Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

Susana Balboandrsquo;s new releases begin with the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon, which has 10% Malbec in its blend. It was made from 33-year-old ungrafted vines and aged for 13 months in 80% new French oak before bottling without fining and filtration. Aromas of wood smoke, spice box, tobacco, coffee, and assorted black fruits inform the nose of a supple, easygoing, relatively forward wine that will deliver plenty of pleasure over the next 5andndash;7 years.

Bright ruby-red. Cassis bitter chocolate licorice and spices on the nose. Juicy spicy and nicely delineated with a restrained sweetness to the flavors of plum and currant. Finishes with a firm tannic spine that should support some aging but this would be good with fatty meats right now. Classy cabernet for the price range. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

WA 90pts. - According to the Wine Advocate: Susana Balbo is very high on Mendoza s 2009 vintage, calling it a 'fantastic year'. The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon spent 5 months in seasoned French and American oak. It is purple-colored with a classy nose of cigar box, cassis, black currant, and violets. Medium-to full bodied, it has excellent depth, savory flavors, ripe tannin for balance, and a lengthy, fruit-filled finish. It will evolve for 1-2 years but can be enjoyed now and over the next 4-5 years.
