Some of the Appellation wines were produced before the whole range was created, as is the case with the classical 2016 Appellation Agrelo Cabernet Sauvignon, from a classical zone in Luján de Cuyo. It was produced with grapes from 30-year-old vines at 950 meters in altitude from a cool El Niño year. It fermented after a three-day cold soak and matured in French and American oak barrels for one year. This is one of the few places where you find old-vine Cabernet Sauvignon, a classical place for the grape. It's serious, harmonious and very varietal, without green or overripe aromas. It has a great palate with very fine tannins, elegant yet powerful. This overdelivers.
