"The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon showed how intense the variety can be in the high-altitude vineyards of Salta. It has an explosive nose, intensely herbal and spicy and a round and lush palate with very fine tannins and a balsamic finish. 25,000 bottles produced."

"The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon El Esteco (100% Cabernet Sauvignon from Cafayate) was made with grapes from an old pergola vineyard. The wine was aged for 12 months in four fifths French oak and one fifth American. Typical of Cabernets from the region, it’s red in the glass with a nose of pyrazines, roasted red pepper, spices and jalapeño with a blackberry backdrop. The active, polished tannins channel the good flow that at moments feels a little compressed. The intense flavors and aftertaste are very much in harmony."
