Bodegas Escorihuela 2013 '1884' Reservado Cabernet Sauvignon (Mendoza) Argentina
Availability: BCLDB Stores
Cost: $15.99 + taxes
Date Tasted: September 19th, 2015
Tasting Notes: A dark ruby-purple, fruit-forward Cabernet Sauvignon from Mendoza that delivers a Malbec-y nose of mixed berry fruit and spicy plum aromas followed by a more typically Cabernet palate of cassis and oak supported by savoury flavours and firm tannins. Balance skews a bit 'sweet' but this is (mostly) offset by spice and oak notes and some solid acidity on the finish. Drink now-2017.
