La Mascota "Cabernet Sauvignon" 2016

100% Cabernet Sauvignon
A still red wine from the Mendoza region of Argentina.

Very pleasant. Berry jam, graphite, dark chocolate.

Tasting Notes

This Argentinian Cabernet Sauvignon has a complex bouquet with black fruit jam, graphite and a hint of dark chocolate.

The 2016 La Mascota is round on the nose and on the palate.

On the mouth, the tannins are soft and I find a spicy and slightly bitter closing note.

Very drinkable and pleasant.

Cabernet Sauvignon

Red-wine variety of grape

Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the most well-known red wine grape varieties in the world. It is grown in nearly every major wine-producing region, in a wide range of climates, from the Okanagan Valley in Canada to the Beqaa Valley in Lebanon. Cabernet Sauvignon rose to popularity as a result of its use in Bordeaux wines, where it is often blended with Merlot and Cabernet Franc. The grape spread through Europe and into the New World, settling in places like California’s Santa Cruz Mountains, Paso Robles, Napa Valley, Hawkes Bay, South Africa’s Stellenbosch region, Australia’s Margaret River and Coonawarra valleys, and Chile’s Maipo Valley and Colchagua. It was the world’s most widely planted premium red wine grape for most of the twentieth century, before Merlot overtook it in the 1990s. By 2015, however, Cabernet Sauvignon had reclaimed its place as the most widely planted wine grape, with 341,000 hectares (3,410 km2) under vine globally.
