Domaine Bousquet, Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2018, Tupungato Uco Valley, Mendoza, Argentina
Tasting Note: Made with organic grapes, this cabernet sauvignon is a no-brainer wine to take to a party and rest assured everyone will enjoy what you’ve delivered to the table.
Deep-intensity purple in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of blackberry, black plum, black currant, raspberry puree and red cherry.
On the palate the dry, full-bodied cabernet sauvignon has medium-plus-intensity, black-fruit flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and well-integrated, medium-plus tannin.
The wine is smooth texture with moments of velvetiness along the length of the taste.
Bottle Note: Made with organic grapes. 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Malbec. 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 120 m.a.s.l. Its thermal amplitude contributes to obtaining full ripened grapes with an excellent acidity. The grapes are hand-picked and the vineyard is certified organic. Aged 10 months in French oak. This wine is elegant and modern in style with lots of mineral, lovely red currant, blackberry, plum, and cassis flavors. With silky tannins and bright acidity this wine is refreshing through a long, and pleasant finish. Ideal with pasta dishes, red meat and meat sauces.
