Ruca Malen Classic Cabernet Sauvignon

This Cabernet Sauvignon hosts initial aromas of black fruit and baking spices with red pepper and currant progressively emerging. A vibrant wine, packed with sweet tannins that provide structure and body. Vinified in stainless steel, 20% of the wine is transferred into French oak to age for 6 months.

Standard plum and berry aromas form a harmonious opening.  The palate on this Cab is a bit acidic, with a clipped overall mouthfeel and lightly baked, earthy flavors of generic black fruits. The finish is leathery tasting and chewy.

The 2010 Yauquen Cabernet Sauvignon also received the same elevage. It offers up a similar aromatic and flavor profile but with slightly more concentration. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.
