Mantra, Cabernet Sauvignon 2008, a great Patagonian Cab ready to evolve slow and nicely
Mantra , Cabernet Sauvignon Roble 2008, Edicion Limitada, By Secreto Patagonico, USD 23
A Cabernet from San Patricio Valley, Neuquen Province, North Patagonia
A beautiful Cab with nice ripe black plum and black currants all wrapped up by new oaky stuff like cocoa, cinnamon and vanilla. Adecuate acidity and alcohol to make sure these tannins evolve for 8 years at least. A 90 point red and a great value from Patagonia.
I found a nice complexity and at the same time and easy Cab without nothing over the top.
