Within Argentina the Basso family has always been known for their excellent Cabernet. With it's high elevation and Southern location, their vineyard in La Consulta (named Finca La Amalia) produces some of the most interesting Cabernet fruit in the country. Two separate pickings one week apart give the wine additional complexity and balance. Intense red color. Elegant aromas and flavors of red berries, marmalade, baking spices, and earth. Terrific structure, with medium weight tannins and refreshing acidity.
