2018 Corazon del Sol Cab/Cab
94 Points, Vinous
"The 2018 Cabernet Franc - Cabernet Sauvignon is a 50/50 co-fermentation from the Uco Valley aged for 18 months in 40% new barrels. Garnet red in hue. The nose presents notes of blackcurrant and pepper with hints of herb, cigar box and rose petal. Delivering intense flavor with clear fruity notes and a compact, agile palate, the tannins are polished, reactive and juicy. A wine with a fairly direct structure."
– Joaquín Hidalgo, Vinous
Only six barrels were produced from single acre blocks of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. A profile of Cabernet that marries the power and fruit intensity of high elevation Cabernet Sauvignon with the high toned aromas and elegance of Cabernet Franc. Small batches of hand-harvested Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc are alternately layered and co-fermented to develop a seamless integration of tannin and complex fruit expression.
