2016 Cabernet Sauvignon, Reserve (Sophenia, Finca)
Finca Sophenia, Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve, Tupungato-Mendoza, Argentina 2016FANTASTIC, FIRM CABERNET WITH A LONG FINISH Very impressive classic cherry Cabernet flavors with a perfect balance between acid/tannin and fruit. The finish is long and deep showing ample toasty oak, but never cloaking the fruit. The high altitude vineyards give us grapes with super ripeness, never losing their backbone. The winemaking here is stellar- in a style that pushes the fruit but never overdoing it. We wish all inexpensive cabs could taste this balanced. Serving Suggestion: A nice Cabernet likes to saddle up to red meats like a NY strip steak; tri-tips marinated in garlic and soy sauce; and a burger is not too good for this wine either!
