1884 Cabernet Sauvignon Finca E.G. 2018

Mendoza, ArgentinaThis is an oak-driven cabernet with gobs of sweet spices, chocolate, and cedar after ageing for eight months in French oak. It's obscuring the underlying ripe, polished black fruits at this young age, and I question whether the oak will ever fully integrate. But if you like big, bold, oaky reds, there's no need to wait. Just make sure to throw a steak on the grill as the tannins are still quite blocky.Tasted: 21 February 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 17.99 BCLS Producer: Bodegas Escorihuela GasconDistributors: David Herman & Son Ltd.
