Bodega Altocedro Cabernet Sauvignon Ano Cero 2017
12 Bottle Mix $13.59 each - Save 20%
One of the best and most pure Cabernet Sauvignon available from Argentina at anywhere near this price and one of the greatest values on the market for this varietal. The wine exhibits classic black cherry and black currants-like fruit, with a medium to full bodied texture, excellent oak integration, a mineral component that adds elegance and sophistication and silky tannin with balanced acidity on the finish. A joy to drink. Very Highly Recommended. Armando Luis, Sparrow W & L Company
