Alamos Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Mendoza, ArgentinaFrom high altitude Mendoza vineyards, this was crushed and cold soaked for 72 hours prior to ferment, to extract more intensity. It was then fermented in stainless, and rested 6-9 months in 1 and 2 year French and American oak barrels. Sweet ripe cassis, blackberry is woven with pipe tobacco, camp smoke, pepper, with grippy / ragged tannins leading this to a warming mentholated finish. Best taken now, with grilled meats / veg.Tasted: 22 February 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 14.99 BCLS AB 13.75 select private retailers MB 12.75 select private retailers Producer: Bodega Catena ZapataDistributors: E. & J.
