90 Points James Suckling (2016 vintage)

93 points 5 Stars Sam Kim (2016 vintage)
 
"Sweetly fruited and inviting, the bouquet shows blackcurrant, dark cherry, dried herb and smoked game characters with a hint of spicy complexity. The palate is succulent and beautifully rounded, delivering excellent fruit intensity backed by silky texture and chalky tannins, finishing long and delightfully savoury. At its best: now to 2022"

Amaru Cabernet Sauvignon is a unique wine oriented to have a perfect balance between the fruity characteristic aromas and the oak, delivering finesse and complexity. Concentrated grapes, with medium and small grains are carefully chosen and quickly transferred to the winery to start with the elaboration process. Pre-fermentative macerations at 8 degrees in stainless steal tanks, and gently treatments during alcoholic fermentation are carried out. Utilization of both native and selected yeasts for the fermentation process. Post fermentative macerations, totalizing a maximum of 30 days. Malolactic fermentation in contact with oak. 70% of the wine is aged for 9 months in French and American oak barrels. The final blend is made with the extra 30% preserved in stainless steel tanks.

What a find. A superb Can Sav definitely worth the 90 points given by James Suckling - maybe worth one or two more in my book. This is balanced enough that a couple of friends who are happier with easy drinking whites, came back for seconds.

I keep coming back and purchasing more - this is a wonderfully rich smooth wine, punching well above it's price. The only complaint is that Winesale's rang me when we were half way through a bottle - so I spent more buying more! But damn, so so worth it.
