Alto Molino 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon, Salta, Argentina
This Cabernet is extraordinarily delicious for its humble price point. It jumps from the glass with aromas of mint and forest floor intermixed with dark fruits. On the palate, it offers oodles of ripe and jammy fruit reminiscent of black cherry and red currant, with accents of black pepper and moderate tannins. Layers of toast, vanilla and spice were imparted from 9 months of aging in American oak barrels. These grapes were estate grown in the Cafayate sub-region at an elevation of 5,985 feet; Alto Molino is one of the highest altitude vineyards in Argentina and also the world. We typically wouldn’t feature such a bold red in the heat of July, but this wine was too tasty to pass up, so go fire up the grill!
