What importer Polaner Selections has to say about this wine...
VARIETAL NOTES70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 10% MalbecORGANICPracticingVINEYARDThe Cabernet Sauvignon comes from Cruz de Piedra and was planted in 1993. The Merlot also comes from Cruz de Piedra but was planted in 1967. The Malbec is from Agrelo and was planted in 1927.SOILAlluvial sands with a calcareous composition.VITICULTUREAll work is done by hand. The vines are trained to low traditional trellises. The planting density is high and so yields are low.VINIFICATIONEach variety ferments separately in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts.AGINGThe varieties age separately for 36 months in French Nancy oak vats ranging in size from 10,000-35,000 liters. The blend is then assembled and the wine ages in stainless steel until bottling.
Bought 3 pack of 10year, 15year and 20year and tried all three at the same time. The 20year had a touch of vinegariness you get from old wines. 15year still felt fresh. Price wise, would pick the 10 year which could still use few years in the cellar. Taste wise, thoroughly new world but not a fruit bomb but lacks the silkiness of old world wines. At ~$30, it's pretty good though. If you had to buy one, would recommend the 15yr.
