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

The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon spent 9 months in one-year-old French and American oak and was bottled without fining or filtration. Purple-colored, it reveals an expressive perfume of cedar, spice box, black currant and black raspberry. This is followed by a medium to full-bodied wine with lots of savory black fruit, enough structure to evolve for 1-2 years, excellent balance, and a long, fruit-filled finish. Drink it over the next 3-4 years.

Dark in color, with aromas of coconut, leather, chocolate malt balls and generic black fruit. The wine is tannic and a little bit grating but generally in balance, with bold cassis, cherry and blackberry flavors. Not complex and seemingly made more for the everyday wine drinker than the collector.

Bright red-ruby. Black raspberry, musky espresso and bitter chocolate. A step up in intensity and grip from the bonarda-syrah blend, but in a distinctly structured style, even a bit tough for a young cabernet in this price range. With its solid tannic spine and finishing spice, this is not at all a tutti-frutti style of cabernet.

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.

Bright red-ruby. Aromas and flavors of ripe currant, leather, smoke, bakerrsquo;s chocolate and dried herbs. Smooth, lush and ripe; a satisfying, seamless cabernet with fine-grained dusty tannins and nice length. This punches above its weight class.
