Casas Del Bosque Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

89 pts Stephen Tanzer/Vinous June 2015 (JR)

Tasting Notes

Deep ruby red in color, on the nose this wine exhibits lifted notes of dark cherry, plum and expresso bean. In the mouth ample flavors of cassis, cinnamon and nutmeg dominate. Rich yet elegant tannins impart fine structure and a long finish.


Awards, Reviews and other Notes

89 pts Stephen Tanzer/Vinous June 2015 (JR)
Deep ruby. Peppery cherry and cassis on the fragrant nose, with a hint of smokiness in the background. Taut and focused on entry, then fleshier in the middle, offering bitter cherry and licorice flavors and a touch of sweet chewing tobacco. Finishes with good tangy cut and lift and dusty tannins that come in late.



Winemaker Notes

After being hand harvested the grapes were crushed and de-stemmed to stainless steel tanks. The must was then warmed and inoculated with selected yeasts and fermented during 10 to 15 days with temperatures peaking at 33ºC/91ºF. Following the completion of fermentation the must was subjected to an additional 5 days of post fermentation maceration (to give a total of 20 days total skin contact). The wine was then pressed off skins and put to French oak barrels for 10 months during which time it was racked twice: once in the spring when it was first sulfured (following the completion of malolactic fermentation) and then once again shortly before bottling.
