About

90+

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from their Finca Los Andes vineyard planted ungrafted in Perdriel in 1998 at 1,050 meters in altitude. It was harvested during the second half of April in a cooler and wetter year. Like the Malbec, it fermented in small stainless steel tanks and aged in French barriques for one year. It was bottled in October 2017. This 2016 is spicy and fresh, not a style of concentrated and tannic Cabernet, more elegant than structured. According to Roberto de la Mota, the character comes from clone 337, which is the one used to plant this vineyard. There is good definition, and it's clean. Even if the year was very rainy, it was also cold and had less of a problem with botrytis. 17,000 bottles produced.
