93 Points, James SucklingThis Cabernet Sauvignon “Leyenda” is named after the ‘legendary’ century-old vines in our vineyard surrounding the winery in Mendoza from which we handpick fruit to craft this wine. Sensuous and elegant the wine has been aged for 12 month in French oak barrels. Full bodied and concentrated, with good tannin structure, lovely currant, blueberry and mocha flavors, lead to a long finish.James Suckling: “Lots of sweet-tobacco and currant aromas with hints of fresh flowers. Medium to full body, chewy tannins and a savory finish. Old vines give real character. Better to drink after 2021, but already beautiful.” Winery: “The fruit for our Cabernet Sauvignon Ultra was hand-picked, in April into 15kg-trays to preserve the berries, which were then selected manually in the winery to ensure removal of any foreign particles capable of affecting final product quality. Must was fermented in small tanks under optimum conditions preserving vineyard character and qualities.”Vibrant deep red color so typical of this variety, this wine displays great elegance and balance in the nose. Ripe fruit aromas evoke prunes, strawberries, and cherries intertwined with spicy notes, such as black pepper, tobacco, and sweet red pepper. The palate reveals an exceptionally powerful wine with the characteristic round and opulent tannins from grapes grown in Vistalba’s unique terroir. A pleasant and persistent finish displays more red fruit notes, but this time intertwined with vanilla and chocolate from oak aging.”Bottle750ml, corkVarietal100% Cabernet SauvignonAlcohol14.5%Aging12 months in French oak barrelsRegionVistalba-Luján de Cuyo-Mendoza, Argentina
