Wine Review: This pitch black colored Cabernet based blend from Argentina opens with a ripe blackberry jam bouquet with a hint of oak. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a ripe blackberry and blueberry blend with notes of nicely integrated minerality. I also detected hints of black plum and faint oak. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins and fruit flavors stick around for a very long time. This wine would be a perfect accompaniment for a ribeye steak. Enjoy – Ken
Winemaker Notes: The rich varietal flavor of the Cabernet Sauvignon grape grown in Argentina and aged in new oak results in a harmonious, velvety wine of great balance and prominent personality. This vintage is an intense and seductive violet red color, showing fruit aromas of plums, black cherries and mulberries mixed with spices, and leading to mature fruit and spice on the palate. Enzo Bianchi wines are known for their long, smooth, very pleasing finish.
