5 Stars - Raymond Chan (2016 vintage)
"Dark, deep, black-hued ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is elegantly presented and well-proportioned with deep and concentrated aromas of ripe blackcurrant fruit with cassis liqueur notes, herbs, savoury green olives, and refined, pencilly oak. Full-bodied, the palate features sweetly ripe and well-concentrated flavours of blackcurrants and cassis along with subtle herb notes, nuances of savoury olives and pencilly oak. The mouthfeel is fresh, firm and vibrant with good fine-grained tannin structure and lively, lacy acidity. The flavours flow with drive and energy, leading to a sustained, elegant finish of blackcurrants and herbs. This is an elegantly proportioned and well-concentrated, classical Cabernet Sauvignon with blackcurrant and cassis fruit along with herbs, olives and pencilly oak of a fine, but firm-textured, driven palate" Raymond Chan

88 Points - Wine Enthusiast (2016 Vintage)
"Funky aromas of olive, rubber and sea shell announce a wine from Argentina's northlands. This Cafayate Cabernet is tight and hard-edged, while flavors run towards blackened plum, blackberry and pepper. Toasty spice and hard tannins control a rugged finish." Wine Enthusiast

92 Points - James Suckling (2016 Vintage)
"Loads of blackcurrants, hot stones, citrus and red plums as well as cedar and plenty of spices. Linear and very compact on the palate with a lovely firm backbone of tannins, a driven line of acidity and a chewy, structured finish." James Suckling

The El Esteco range is the flagship range of the winery, amazing quality wines, and astonishing value at this level. Winesale.co.nz is proud to be the exclusive retailer of these fantastic wines.

Ruby red, profound and clean. Tears formed in glass indicate a very good structure and concentration. Spicy notes where black and red peppers outstand. Persistent and elegant. True exponent of a Cabernet Sauvignon from the Calchaqui Valley. Ripe and round tannins fulfill the mouth. Black fruit and chocolate notes prevail where the oak is gently integrated with the fruit. Long and elegant persistence.
