Zuccardi Q Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 Wine Spectator 2016 Top 100 - #53


Awards, Reviews and other Notes

A refined and savory red, featuring notes of white pepper to the cherry and crushed red plum flavors. Lengthens out on the palate, with medium-grained tannins. Silky finish. Drink now through 2020.
90 pts The Wine Advocate
A mental picture of Indian food popped in my head when I put my nose in the glass of the 2013 Q Cabernet Sauvignon because it smells of curry, nutmeg, flowers and nuts. This is a blend of grapes from Gualtallary and la Consulta, both in the Uco Valley. In reality is not all Cabernet, but the Cabernet is partly co-fermented with Malbec (perhaps the reason why it doesn't really feel like Cabernet). The palate is juicy and spicy with a mixture of earthy and sweet tannins and very good freshness. There is a notable absence of green notes because the region is warm and the grapes ripen fully. Sebastian Zuccardi considers this 2013 the best vintage for this label. Subsequent 2014 and 2015 were a lot more difficult for Cabernet.



Winemaker Notes

Today, the grapes used for Zuccardi Q, come from recognized micro-regions in the Uco Valley and selected old vineyards. There is a great intensity with ripe red and black fruit notes, such as blueberry and cassis, with some black pepper notes. Full bodied with firm, mature and integrated tannins. Very long and persistent finish.
