Zuccardi's 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Finca Los Membrillos from Paraje Altamira, Uco Valley was aged in French oak for 12 months. Garnet red in color. The subtle but forthcoming nose offers ripe redcurrant with hints of sour cherry, oak and sweet spices followed by candied quince. Gentle balsamic aromas come forward. The compact, fluid entrance precedes a flow channeled by fine tannins. The palate is smooth enough to be on the cusp of velvety without getting indulgent or compromising on intensity. Overall, the balance is exquisite with fruity flavors, a refined texture and ripe tannins. Takes Argentine Cabernet to a whole new level.
