Carmelo Patti 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon

About the Wine

While under the radar in the United States, Carmelo Patti is very well known throughout Argentina for this "cult" Cabernet Sauvignon bottling. This single vineyard Cabernet from Perdriel is more European in style than most examples you will find there, the result of vineyard work that favors balance and finesse over power, native yeast fermentation, traditional elevage, and extended aging in bottle prior to release.

Tasting Notes

"The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon from Perdriel feels very classical, aromatic, and minty, with notes of paprika, brick dust and a leafy sensation with elegance and complexity.  Carmelo likes to sell wines that are ready to drink, and this one certainly is, with developed aromas and a polished texture.  He always gets his grapes from the same vineyard and the wines are pretty consistent across vintages. The textbook Cabernet tannins are there, and so is the freshness and supple flavors.  This is a great, classical Cabernet from the classical zone for the grape in Mendoza."   ~Wine Advocate
