WA 89 WE 89 Pts - According to Wine Advocate - The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon mixes grapes from Medrano where it is warmer and their vines are young, while Agrelo is fresher (very old vines). The wine aged for eight months in French oak barrels, third and fourth-use. It is a ripe Cabernet with a creamy texture, where they are looking for the varietal character. It has a velvety palate and is medium-bodied and intense, with fine tannins combining the elegance of the Old World and fruit of the New World.
According to International Wine Cellar - Bright red-ruby. Redcurrant, plum, mocha and tobacco leaf on the nose and palate. Smooth, saline and distinctly Old World, with a truffley nuance and good peppery acidity to frame and carry the red fruit flavors. Finishes subtle and persistent, with slightly dusty tannins.
According to Wine Spectator - A juicy red, showing a candied edge to the racy raspberry and cherry fruit, with cedar and mineral accents to the chewy finish.
According to Wine Enthusiast - Condensed aromas of jammy berry fruits and earth notes precede a cushioned but fiery palate. Raisin, berry syrup and oak define the wine’s driving flavors, while a muscular, hot, acid-driven finish closes things out. This is 50% each of Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink from 2014 on.
