About

91

"Layered berry and cassis aromas are a bit scratchy and gritty. This Cabernet feels saturated, pure and deep; flavors of blackberry, cassis, prune and chocolate are ripe and generous, while the finish is mildly herbal in flavor, with good length and build. Drink through 2018. -MS"

Product Description:

“All grapes are carefully selected from a small number of vineyards in the two prime zones of Mendoza in Luján de Cuyo and Valle de Uco.” - Winery

Tasting Notes:
"Rich dark berries, black fruit and complex wood tones of cedar and aged oak come together in this dense Cabernet. Deserving of the Gran Reserva designation with balance from the aroma to the lasting, tannic finish." - Winery

Winery:
"Bodega Sur de los Andes was created by Guillermo Banfi, an Argentine professional who entered the wine industry in 2002. He studied in Los Angeles and New York and then spent the 90’s in banking and finance working in Buenos Aires and New York acquiring both business experience and taste for fine wines.

His passion for wine collided with his business training, and, coming at the start of the worldwide boom in Argentine wines, led him to make the decision to leave banking to pursue a dream of creating a high quality boutique winery.

In 2005, Guillermo, hired one of Argentina’s rising young stars, winemaker Pablo Durigutti, and pursued his dream by forming Sur de los Andes." - Winery
