Bemberg La Linterna Cabernet Sauvignon 2015, Valle de Cafayate, Salta, Argentina

Bemberg Estate Wines

Dry red wine, 75cl. Full bodied 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from Valle de Cafayate, Salta, Argentina. 14.5% ABV. 

Very concentrated, bright and powerful in its fruit expression. Ripe blackberry and crunchy black currants with a core of inky blackness highlighting a bold and confident style of Cabernet Sauvignon. Notes of oven roasted red and green red bell peppers intermingle with fragrance of lavender, mint leaves and a spicy whiff of liquorice and pepper. Savoury cedar and hints of tobacco, minerality of graphite and iodine add further layers of complexity. Intense and charismatic in its almost liqueur like richness, it is well supported by freshness and firm tannin structure.
