"The 2010 Zolo Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is a worthy follow-up to the 2009. It has a sedate, well-defined bouquet of kirsch, cranberry, raspberry and that gravel note. The palate is full-bodied and well-balanced with earthy ripe black fruit. It is a little broody, but draws you in, and the finish is powerful but wonderfully focused. This is a classy Cabernet. Drink 2013-2020+" (10/12)
"Intense and deep ruby red color. Complex aromas with concentrated cassis nose, plums and berries. The time in barrels provide a delicate aroma of vanilla, chocolate and caramel. Balanced, long finish."
"We strive to achieve a Cabernet with powerful and complex aromas of cassis, plums, and red fruit, and hints of vanilla and caramel."
"The winemakers are Fabian Valenzuela & Jean Claude Berrouet (former winemaker at Petrus). Grapes come from San Pablo estate single vineyard, in Tupungato, Valle de Uco, Mendoza. The average age of the vines are 14 years old. A cold premaceration takes place (8 degrees C) for 5 days to extract color and aromas. Fermented in stainless steel tanks for approximately 15 days at 28 degrees C, then rests on the lees for 16 days. Aging takes place 12-14 months in French (95%) and American (5%) first and second use oak barrels." - Winery
"The climate and soil of this property give special characteristics from high altitude vineyards (1350 meters above sea level / 4430 feet) to this variety differentiating it significantly from other traditional Cabernet Sauvignon." - Vineyard
