Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

As a tribute to the land and to those who work it, Luigi Bosca have worked more than 110 years to understand the intention of the vine. The passion of four generations of the same family, shown in Bodega Luigi Bosca’s collection, reflects the result of an ambitious effort started many years ago: the wish to express the thorough version of the essence of Argentine wine.

Terroir: Sourced from Bosca’s east facing El Paraiso vineyard in Lujan de Cuyo-Maipo. Vines average 45 years and sit at an elevation of 780 meters. Soils here are well drained and shallow based with a mix of limestone and silt.

Vinification: Grapes are hand harvested and meticulously sorted and destemmed upon arrival at the winery. Fermentation occurs at cool temperatures in stainless steel tanks followed by 14 months aging in new and second use French oak. The wine is lightly filtered prior to bottling.

    "Crisp and minerally, with fine-grained red fruit and dried berry flavors that feature savory accents. Baker's chocolate and flinty notes show on the firmly tannic finish. Drink now through 2024."

    "A well made cabernet sauvignon with a nice balance of moderately dry tannins and cassis character, the finish quite dry but lively. Drink now."

    "If this is a sign of things to come at Luigi Bosca under Pablo Cúneo, then it’s very exciting indeed. Floral, intense and beautifully judged, with classic Altamira structure and polish, subtle oaking and fine, layered tannins."

    "Varietally accurate scents of cassis, licorice, herbs and graphite. A juicy, leanish midweight with modest concentration but decent cut; dry in an Old World way but ultimately supple. Even, dusty tannins give grip to the finish."
