Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Valentin Bianchi is a steal. It opens with mild blueberry and oak bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty mild plum with notes of gentle minerality and faint oak. I also detected hints of blueberry. The finish is dry and has virtually no tannins. Its fruit flavors drift away nicely. This very good value Cab, while not complex is a great glass pour option. It is food friendly, versatile and will be a crowd pleaser. I would pair it with a bacon burger. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: Elsa Bianchi Cabernet Sauvignon is deep red with ruby shading; aromas of spicy black pepper, cedar and licorice, mingling with fresh toast and wild mint notes. Blackberry and cassis are perfectly intertwined on the palate, coupled with a strong presence of black fruit. This is a medium bodied wine with a pleasing, berry-vanilla finish. Elsa Cabernet Sauvignon is the perfect accompaniment to a wide range of foods, especially the steaks and beef that are typical of Argentine cuisine.
