2019 Las Prisas La Rioja, Argentina Cabernet Sauvignon
A complex red from Argentina’s La Rioja region that showcases abundant red and black fruit flavors.
About This Wine:
Most Americans would probably say California’s Napa Valley, home to some of the most acclaimed wine estates on the planet. Those who are really into wine may suggest the Bordeaux appellation of France, home to magnificent historic chateaux and equally magnificent red wines.
One would be less likely to suggest Argentina, where Malbec has emerged as the star variety after making its way from France, where it traditionally played a minor role in those delicious Bordeaux cuvees. Yet in certain parts of Argentina, including the region known as La Rioja, Cabernet Sauvignon shines just as brightly as Malbec.
Las Brisas is among the star producers of La Rioja, and its 2019 Cabernet is a stunning wine from its engaging aroma to its fruitful flavor to its long, memorable finish. It’s a wine that will make you think differently about great Cabernet regions.
