Mission Briefing

Codename:

On Top of the World

Argentina obviously has made itself known internationally with Malbec, but there are producers like the Molina Brothers who are growing some of the best tasting Cab on the planet. Grown at over 7000ft, that’s no small… feat! At that elevation hail can happen at any moment - which is why the vineyards are continuously covered in hail nets to prevent crop loss. Hot, sun-filled days that are very dry give way to chilly nights providing exceptional conditions for dark color extraction, tannin, and flavor depth.

We were simply blown away by the quality here. This wine tastes like a $100 Cabernet from Mount Veeder or Howell Mountain. Today’s budget delight is an amazing wine for a limited offer price of just $18.99. Time to stock up?

Tasting Profile

Look:

Intense and dark with a purple-black robe.

Smell:

Smells like it could be a $100 Napa Valley mountain Cab! Lots of toast, licorice, cedar, cigar box, and dark fruit aromas.

Taste:

Mouth-filling and dense, this immediately tastes like an expensive Cabernet. Plum, berry, blackcurrants, bay leaf, anise, dark chocolate.

Finish:

Youthful and chewy, but very generous. Real deal Cabernet that will age for 10+ years. Really quite delicious right now, and it has great promise for the future.

Pairing:

Needs a bit of protein - a nicely charred steak, for example - to really shine. Serve it up from a decanter and let it fully open to reveal the sweet fleshy Cab profile.
