Finca Decero Cabernet Sauvignon Remolinos Vineyard 2014

Agrelo District, Luján de Cuyo, Northern Region, Mendoza, ArgentinaFinca Decero is a vineyard that was carved out of its landscape from ‘scratch’ or ‘decero’ as they say in Spanish. The winery philosophy is less is more, to allow the character of the 3500-foot-high Remolinos Vineyard in Agrelo to shine through the wine. The ‘remolinos’ reference is to the whirlwinds that sweep through the countryside keeping the grapes dry and in perfect condition. Last year there was a certain Napa feel to this wine, in terms of roundness and richness. It still has that weight finesse but in this much cooler year, the nose is more aromatic and stylish with concentrated, ripe, blueberry/blackberry fruit with vanilla and roasted coffee. Prime rib, lamb or T-bone steak would be a fine match.Tasted: 23 July 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 29.00 private wine shops AB 22.00 private wine shops ON 22.00 Producer: Finca DeceroDistributors: Appellation Wine Marketing
