Domaine Bousquet, Virgen Organic Cabernet Sauvignon 2019, Tupungato, Uco Valley, Mendoza, Argentina
Tasting Note: An organic cabernet sauvignon with nice berry notes.
Deep-intensity purple in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of black plum, blackberry and bramble with some notes of yogurt.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied cabernet sauvignon has medium-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by slightly-grippy, medium tannin.
Midweek cabernet and better the second day after it opens up.
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 1,200 m.a.s.l. Its thermal amplitude contributes to obtaining fully ripened grapes with an excellent acidity. The grapes are hand-picked and the vineyard is certified organic. Virgen is the most pure expression from our terroir. With only natural occurring sulfites, Virgen is a well-balanced cabernet sauvignon with rich and pure fruit flavors. Tones of red and black fruits as raspberry and blackcurrant make it deal with red meat and pasta dishes.
