2013 Bemberg Estate, 'La Linterna' Cabernet Sauvignon, Valle de Cafayate, Salta, 6x75cl
FOOD MATCHING NOTE:
Very concentrated, bright and powerful in its fruit expression. Ripe blackberry and crunchy black currants with a core of inky blackness highlighting a bold and confident style of Cabernet Sauvignon. Notes of oven roasted red and green red bell peppers intermingle with fragrance of lavender, mint leaves and a spicy whiff of liquorice and pepper. Savoury cedar and hints of tobacco, minerality of graphite and iodine add further layers of complexity. Intense and charismatic in its almost liqueur-like richness, it is well supported by freshness and firm tannin structure which underlines its potential for harmonious bottle maturation.
