Classic Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Region: Argentina / Mendoza
Grapes: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon

Alta Vista’s Classic Cabernet Sauvignon shows the distinct characteristics of this variety. With ripe and spicy berries, this wine’s aromas and flavors provide an excellent introduction to the fresh, fruit-forward characteristics and overall quality of wines from Argentina. All grapes are hand-picked and carefully destemmed before being placed into stainless steel tanks, where they undergo fermentation over a 7-day period, with frequent pumping over, followed by maceration for 10 additional days. The wine is then aged in French oak for 6 months.

harvest note

The 2018 vintage was a particularly exciting vintage with ideal growing conditions following the cooler 2016 and 2017 vintages. The growing season was warm and dry, which is more typical of an average Mendoza vintage. The temperate weather allowed for better quality, but also greater quantity of grapes as well. The grapes were able to ripen evenly and harvest took place 10-14 days ahead of the previous two vintages.

tasting note

This Cabernet Sauvignon is intense in nose, with pepper and ripe red fruit aromas. Cherry flavors in mouth with a reminiscent of fresh vegetation. A young, easy to drink wine with an embracing taste.

food pairing

The perfect match for meat, pasta with intense sauces, and hard and semi-hard cheese types.
