This single vineyard Reserva line from Agrelo reflects the identity of a privileged terroir in a select area of Mendoza, at the foothills of the Andes. The balance of fruit and well integrated oak in this reserve line results in unique and expressive wines with exceptional quality. Sustainably farmed and estate bottled.
Produced and Bottled by Bodega Lamadrid
The 2017 Lamadrid Cabernet Franc Reserva begins with a very pleasing aroma of blueberry, spice, mint, licorice, a little leather and more.
The wine tastes absolutely delicious! With good complexity, good balance and good structure the wine tastes just as good as the 2013 vintage we tasted when we visited the winery a few years ago.
It ends dry, grippy, chewy and very long.
This is another excellent Cabernet Franc from Argentina. In fact, I might even like this variety even better than the excellent Argentinean Malbec everyone knows and loves. If you haven't explored Cab Franc from Argentina this is definitely an area to check out.
