Piattelli Grand Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
Aromatic and complex, the Grand Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is produced from grapes grown on 30 year-old vines in the high altitude Uco Valley. The Grand Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon fussy grapes grow in ideal temperatures which removes inherent herbaceous flavors. All grapes are water irrigated with crystal-clear water from the Andes and thrive in the nutrient-rich soil. Piattelli’s Cabernet grapes are grown on 30-year-old vines located in the high-altitude Uco Valley (elev. 3,527 ft), which are managed to yield only 4.4 pounds of fruit per vine and 3.6 tons per acre. The Grand Reserve Cabernet leverages environmental advantages to boost the phenols and tannins that define Cabernet’s distinct flavor structure.
An aromatic, complex wine with a deep ruby red color, Grand Reserve Cabernet delights the senses with a fragrant bouquet of fresh berries and cassis, evolves on the palate to include notes of chocolate, black pepper, and caramel, lingers with a soft tannin pull, and finishes with tantalizing hints of fruit and vanilla.
