Achaval Ferrer Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
Combining grapes from the Uco Valley and Luján de Cuyo, Achaval Ferrer bottled this Cabernet Sauvignon after aging it for 12 months in used French barrels. Deep red with a purple sheen. The nose offers licorice, black currant and white pepper. Firm, grippy tannins set off the core of a fruit-forward palate and a lengthy, smoky finish. Will grow more well-rounded with time.
Iodine and hot stone notes flank the dried red fruit and berry flavors. Forest floor details show on the zesty finish. Drink now.
