de Angeles Gran Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
Argentina Mendoza Vistalba
100% Cabernet Sauvignon
The earliest records indicate this vineyard was planted in 1924 and the family has continued to preserve the terroir in its traditional way. After selling grapes to the top wineries, the family built their own on-site garage-size winery with 2007 as the first vintage. The focus is to show the full expression of the grapes with little influence from oak or the winemaker.
Total production 280 cases.
