In recent years we’ve become a tad obsessed with Cabernet Franc and we’ve probably taken on more than is commercially sensible from Argentina. Thus, it didn’t take a massive leap of faith to jump into this lovely example from Uruguay. It would be wrong and pointless to compare, but this too has hints of that typical lifted capsicum nose. It is happily but not overly ripe and soft with dense dark fruits on the palate and enticing herbaceous qualities throughout. A judicious six months in second use French barrels is sufficient to tease out some complexity.
