James Suckling Review
Lots of tobacco, berry and mushroom character here. Full body, tight and chewy tannins, and a savory finish. This is structured. Vibrant and beautiful. Drink in 2019.
Wine Advocate Review
The 2015 Susana Balbo Signature Cabernet Sauvignon, produced from Los Arboles in the district of Tunuyan in the Uco Valley, is sourced from a cool year, and has an austere, strict profile. The oak in unnoticeable, nicely folded into the wine, and the palate is ultra-sleek, polished and elegant, with very fine tannins, nice acidity, and a subtle minerality providing freshness and length. The balsamic, herbal character grows in the glass, where the wine feels fresher and fresher. This is a great vintage for this bottling. Drink 2017-2021.
Wine Tasting Notes
Deep, ruby red color with perfumed aromas of cassis, blackcurrants, redcurrants along with hints of roasted coffee. On the palate is ultra-sleek, with very fine tannins. Mint, dried herb and cassis flavors, with tangy acidity and well handled oak, nicely folded into the wine. A sublte minerality provides freshness and good length.
95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot
