Domaine Bousquet, Cabernet Sauvignon 2017, Tupungato, Uco Valley, Mendoza, Argentina
Tasting Note: A lighter-styled cabernet sauvignon made from organic grapes that would pair well with many a dish.
Medium-to-deep-intensity ruby in color, this wine has an aromatic nose of blackberry, red plum, black currant and dried-violet leaf.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied cabernet sauvignon presents medium-intensity flavors suggested on the nose with hints of tart fruit running under the predominately black-fruit profile.
The wine is medium in acidity, tannin and finish.
Bottle Note: Domaine Bousquet combines the know-how of French winemaking with Argentina’s exceptional climate and terroir. The vineyard is located at the foothills of the Andes, at 1200 m.a.s.l. Its thermal amplitude contributes to obtaining fully ripened grapes with an excellent acidity. The grapes are handpicked, and the vineyard is certified organic. This wine has an elegant style, with lots of mineral notes, cherry and currant. The palate is full of ripe fruit flavors with delicate tannins. This wine pairs well with pasta dishes, red meat and sauces.
