This is a single varietal Cabernet Franc from Argentina, sourced from vineyards at 1500 metres. This wine has seen a little oak but mainly displays pure fruit characteristics. For instance, blackberry, strawberry and sour cherry really come through on the palate. This is a very drinkable wine indeed and worth trying if you’re a fan of Cabernet Franc.
90 / 100 Paz Levinson, Decanter Magazine South American Cabernet Franc, October 2018 (2017 vintage):
Elegant and inviting aromas of blackberry, violets and dried herbs. The palate imparts a zesty freshness, with refined tannins that are sustained through to a pleasing finish.
91 / 100 Decanter.com, January 2018 (2016 vintage):
A great value wine that demonstrates the increasing success Argentina is having with varietal Cabernet Franc. Lorca vineyards are in Vista Flores at 1050 metres, ensuring great ripeness and perfume in the inky, boysenberry and violet fruit which is left to shine, as only 30% of the wine was aged in oak, for just six months.
