Marquis Tasting Note:
Located in Mendoza Argentina and established in 1959 by the Maza family and in 2008, Hector Durigutti together with Guillermo García Lamadrid injected enthusiasm and capital into the winery. They decided to keep the traditional 50-year-old building but relying on the advances of the cutting-edge technology. Lamadrid prides themselves on their skilled team who meticulously select the best clusters for winemaking. Their style is defined by the fruit quality coming from 80-year-old vineyards and combining old oenology techniques with new technological practices. This Cabernet is classically full of rich dark fruit character and is the ideal pairing for grilled red meat dishes.
A ripe version, with an inviting smoke note leading to ripe cassis, damson plum and wild herb notes, as light tannins give structure to the finish -Wine Spectator, 91 points
