Luminis Cabernet Sauvignon, 2012, Mendoza, Argentina

16 Oct

091Single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon from Luján de Cuyo, one of the warmer regions of Mendoza. Five percent of the wine saw 8 months in older American oak barrels, so there’s a slight oaky warmth accentuating the dark red fruit on the nose and palate. Think grilled steak with chimichurri—this is Argentine Cabernet, after all. $15
