Four 1/2 Stars - Warren Barton (2010 Vintage)
Silver Medal - Argentine Wine Awards (2010 Vintage)

Five Stars, 94 Points - Sam Kim Wine Orbit (2010 Vintage)
"This Cabernet has a real luxury feel to it. The bouquet is superbly ripe and complex displaying blackberry, dark plum, cedar and dried herb characters. It's concentrated and weighty on the palate showing meltingly sweet texture and classic firm tannins. A wine of considerable presence. At its best: now to 2018" - Sam Kim

Four 1/2 Stars - Warren Barton (2010 Vintage)
Consistently one of the better and more sophisticated red wines produced each year under this Argentinian (Michel Torino) label. A generous blend of berries and cherries subtly spiced, shaken with pepper and wrapped in toasty oak. A long, luxuriant finish."  Warren Barton
 
Fantastic reserve Cabernet Sauvignon from Michel Torino. Made with one goal in mind: creating the best wine from the best grape selection from the most incredible terroir. Located 1700 metres above sea level, the Cafayate Valley creates stunning wines with it's unique alpine climate. Aged in French and American Oak, this wine is everything you are looking for in top flight Cabernet Sauvignon - sophisticated and complex with a long elegant finish. This wine is unbelievable buying.

Origin
Cafayate - Valles Calchaquies - Argentina.

Terroir
Deep, poor and rocky soils. Mountain watering from the Andes. A wide thermal amplitude wich big differences (aproximately 22°C) between the minimum during the cold mornings and nights, and the maximum during sunny days. High sun exposure of about 350 sunny days a year. Dry climate with approximately 120 mm rainfall a year and an average of 15° humidity. The results: High concentration of colour, aromas and flavours, unique fruity character.

Winemaking
The winemaking goal is to produce elegant and complex wines in this range. The first work is in the vineyards to obtain concentration and balance using vines older than 20 years. The harvest is manual, putting the clusters in small 22 kgs. boxes. In the winery the must is produced using just first press juice. 70% of the wines is aged in small barrels of both American and French Oak for 12 months. 100% of the wine does the malolactic fermentation spontaneously.

Tasting Notes
Ruby red, dark and intense with subtle tiles edges. Spicy aroma with red pepper and paprika dominating and the oak adding smoky/tobacco notes. Firm and ripe tannins with a mouthfilling presence. Elegant, sophisticated and complex. Black berries, morello cherry and pepper notes stand out. Long and elegant finish.

Cab Sav,  I either love them or stop after the first glass.  This one never had the top put back on after opening, a great match with the medium rare beef off the Barbie,  great deep plum colour, hung beautifully in the glass, great nose and after taste on the palate, my very fussy mate loved this one and managed to finish the bottle before I realised so I'll certainly be looking to replenish the wine rack with this one very soon

As you would expect from a world beater this wine is very smooth and great with red meats.

Nice wine and definitely worth trying especially at this price. Nice subtle change from the Aussie Cab Savs i'm used to but still the dark colour and heavy weight with smokey,peppery finish. Fantastic with Red meats or BBQ,or probably anything smoked. 84/100 IMHO

One of the better Cab/Sav's I have tryed,with a subtle peppery smokey finish and dark in colour. This very drinkable wine went down well with our Roast Beef.This is a must buy Cab/Sav at this price.

Peppery yet smooth. Lots of wild berry and herb flavours, and a rich ruby colour in the glass. A good match for any robust red meat, especially hearty winter stews or smokey barbeque meats. Also matches well with tasty or blue cheeses. We just cracked it with a  classic spaghetti bolognese and it elevated the humble spag bol to a whole new level.  This is a stunner, and great value for money - a little bit of flash for not too much outlay.

Wow, From the first tentative sip, to the last drop being squeezed out, brilliance. Bold enough to have with BBQ (as we did). Would be interesting enough to drink on its own. A great cab sav at this price.
