Mendel, Cabernet Sauvignon 2013, Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza, Argentina
Tasting Note: This purple-colored cabernet sauvignon has a nose of red and black fruit including blackberry along with leather and tobacco notes.
Aromas on the nose carry elegantly to the palate as flavors with tertiary aging characteristics taking the lead.
Another Mendel offering done in a French style but with ripe Mendoza fruit.
This wine is aged for 12 months in French oak barrels (first use 33%, second use 33, third use 33%).
850 cases made.
