Cab Sauv Carmelo Patti Perdrel Argentina 2006 750ml
The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon from Perdriel shows orange tints denoting its age. Carmelo Patti likes to release his wines after a long aging in the winery, when he thinks they are ready to drink. There are plenty of aromas of tea leaves, paprika, hints of leather and cured meat plus dried flowers and something earthy. The austere palate shows fully-resolved tannins. There is nothing lush about this wine. This superb classically-styled Cabernet is tasty, long and ready to drink. If you want to see what Cabernet can do in Argentina this is a good example. This is like time-travelling.
