Michel Torino 2013 Don David Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon (Calchaqui Valley) Argentina
Availability: BCLDB Stores
Cost: $13.99 + taxes
Date Tasted: September 2nd, 2015
Tasting Notes: Another mass-produced, "reserve" Cabernet Sauvignon from Argentina, though happily, one with some character and good typicity for the variety. Opens with a dense nose of cassis, blackberry, anise, pepper, toasted oak and Brazil nut aromas. Followed by a palate with similar flavours and a full-ish body from residual sugar that just stops short of being too sweet thanks to well-proportioned, fresh berry acidity and impressive, dusty tannins - especially for the price-point. Drink now-2016.
