Mariflor Cabernet Sauvignon

2020 Vintage

Jeb Dunnuck – 93 Points

The 2020 Mariflor Cabernet Sauvignon is another 100% varietal release that has lots to love. Deep purple/ruby-hued, with impressive cassis and ripe cherry fruit, it offers medium to full-bodied richness, nicely integrated oak, classic Cabernet graphite and smoky tobacco notes, plenty of tannins, and outstanding length on the finish. This pure, concentrated, elegant, seriously impressive Cabernet has enough structure to warrant 2-3 years of bottle age and will deliver the goods over the following decade. MATURITY 2025 – 2037

Description

Mariflor Cabernet Sauvignon

Mendoza – Argentina
100% Cabernet Sauvignon

 

We have crafted an emblematic cuvee made entirely from the Bordeaux Right Bank’s flagship grape variety, Cabernet Sauvignon. Our warm, sandy-gravel Mariflor soils are ideal for ripening and unveiling the full potential of the grapes. The result is a well-structured wine with firm tannins and remarkablae romatic complexity, revealing notes of black fruit, blackcurrant, spices, liquorice and mint. The secret behind this wine: power and complexity confer excellent ageing potential while its freshness when young makes it the perfect partner for a wide array of dishes.
