Susana Balbo Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Member Review by Argovino:

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....

Susana Balbo’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 5–7 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 t... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from Mendoza in Argentina. 2010 Susana Balbo Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

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.

Bright ruby-red. Blueberry, cassis, menthol and mineral aromas lifted by spices and flowers; rather Bordeaux-like. Sexy and sweet in the middle but with firm acidity keeping the blackberry, menthol and spicy oak flavors under wraps today. This juicy, firmly built wine finishes with a serious backbone of tannins and acids. Its spine and restrained aromatics suggest holding it for two or three years of further development in bottle. An impressively energetic and classy cabernet sauvignon for this moderate price. Susana Balbo works with older vines and lower yields, preferring to use a relatively warm, extractive fermentation to make wines that will age; the wines she crafts under the BenMarco label are more user-friendly and designed for earlier consumption.
