RESERVE CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2016 LujŠn de Cuyo, Mendoza
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer PIATTELLI
Extremely deep intense purple colour. Attractive, rather intense, complex, slightly spicy, maturing, ripe, plummy, black cherry nose with some sandalwood notes. Dry, medium to medium-full bodied, harmonious, spicy, well structured, fairly dense, ripe, plum-cherry-cassis flavours with a lingering, fairly high acid, gently cedary, mocha-chocolate-tinged finish. Great value here! This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon has 14.5% alcohol and 4 g/L residual sugar with lot number L19061 on the back label. Has not appeared in Vintages before. CSPC 10968
