    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2009 Tilia Cabernet Sauvignon has a dark purple color with ruby red tones. The nose is full of ripe red fruits, sweet spice and a touch of tobacco. The mouthfeel shows red currant and cassis fruit layered with notes of cedar and espresso bean. The finish is soft and sweet, with finely grained tannins adding structure and length.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Lightly floral and decidedly fruity, this is rich in cherry flavors that give it a fresh, clean air. A selection from organically farmed vineyards in Mendoza, the fruit is pure and direct, with enough tannin for an Argentine asado.

    Beerless in Philly (1/19/2011)
    I was impressed with the smoothness, and great quality of this Cab, and the price is unbeatable. I usually spend double the price for my everyday Cabs, and was pleasantly surprised that I didn't have to compromise flavor at this price point.

    Was not as heavy as we usually like our Cabs to be. We like our Cabs almost opaque, this was too light. The taste had nothing horribly wrong. It was very simple and to me it tasted more like a cheaper Pinot or Malbec. Sweeter than a cab should be. I liked it but know many better wines in this price range. I don't need to buy it again for a few years but would if i found myself with in a store with limited selection. I also would buy again just because of the sustainability practices. I have to give them some points there! Good wine to introduce white wine drinkers or beginner wine drinkers to red.

    After being open for an hour it has a nice aroma of berry fruit with just a hint of vegetal. The taste starts with fruit then has that South American earthy flavor. Finish is dry and medium length

    Disappointed to say, this wine was one of the worst cabs I've ever tasted. Definitely not what I was expecting for a 90 point wine. I was excited because it is also labeled as a "green" wine, but my hopes were shattered after the first sip. It lacks body and is very acidic; not very structured, especially for a cab. I prefer jammy, full-bodied reds, and this did unfortunately did not foot the bill. I don't even mind earthy, woody wines, but this one was not balanced at all, in my opinion.

    This is an excellent Cabernet at any price. At this price it is a bargain, great Cabernet flavor, good body, just the right amount of tannin. This is one of the best of the viniferas.

    What a fantastic wine this was for the price! It def deserves the 91 rating! I usually am hesitant when buying cheaper wines. But this one surprised me. Gotta try it at least once if you dont like spending too much.

    I was looking for the malbec on wine.com but was surprised not to find it. I have not had the Tilia cab yet, but I found the malbec to be quite lively. For $8.69 this is a great wine. Lots of black fruit on the nose. Rounded with cigar and licorice. This is a big and bold wine to the taste. Mirrored black fruit with bright young tannin. At this price a great value!
