2011 Tapiz Alta Collection Cabernet Sauvignon
This is a big meaty Cab, packed with flavor and distinctive Mendoza style. It’s a real bargain for $15.59 at Costco. As the winter months approach, this one will warm you up. Enjoy it with a hearty red meat dish.
This wine really changed with some air. At first the nose was earthy and spicy, but after an hour or so, it became much more floral. In the mouth, the wine feels soft and juicy at first, then the big body and flavor creeps in and hits you with a burst of energy. Flavors of dark fruit, blackberry with hints of leather, tobacco and black licorice. The wine picks up its spice notes toward the finish. This is a nice bottle for the money.
