Vina Alicia 'Paso de Piedra' Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

92 pts James Suckling

Tasting Notes



VEGAN FRIENDLY!

Intense dark color. with a raspberry-like aroma and a complexity associated with this noble grape. Fresh, well-balanced, with gobs of dark fruit, great acidity, and mature tannins, unctuous and elegant. In the mouth it is profound and round, fleshy, with soft but potent tannins.


Awards, Reviews and other Notes

88 pts Vinous/Tanzer
Bright ruby-red. More primary and clenched on the nose than the Paso de Piedra Malbec, hinting at chocolate and menthol. A rather muscular, distinctly dry Cabernet with good density of texture but limited fruit sweetness in the early going. In a rather medicinal style, finishing with a firm tannic spine and an impression of austerity. I wonder where this youthfully unforthcoming wine can go in bottle.
92 pts James Suckling June 2017
Currants and stones with hints of mint follow through to a medium body, tight and silky tannins and a savory finish. Drink or hold.



Winemaker Notes

Harvest: By hand, in 20K plastic cartons, in order to preserve the grapes from breaking up or other damages harmful to the grape. Harvest is performed between March 25th and April 5th of each year. Processing: Fermentation is done in steel tanks: Continuous Remontage and Pissonier is performed, in order to obtain softer tannins and great color. The second fermentation is also performed in steel tanks and the rest in French oak barrels. The wine is then transferred to French oak barrels, where it is aged for 8 months, in order to obtain more clarification, and improving its color. Bottling: Is done after a mild filtering over natural earth, in order to eliminate any impurity.
