    Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon

    Item no. 93799

    Winemaker's Notes:

    "Rich in espresso and roasted nut aromas, this big cabernet has strong, youful tannins and pungent acidity. A super value for an Argentina asado."
    -Wines & Spirits

    The grapes are sourced from the 32 year old vineyards in the Maipu district of Mendoza about 2,600 feet above sea-level. Hand-tended and hand-harvested, the Rutini family's high altitude vineyards provide the foundation for Trumpeter. Destemmed for a 15 day fermentation and maceration. Ageing takes place for 7 months in 50% new French oak and 50% in second and third use American oak. 100% malolactic fermentation.

    100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Juicy berry fruit aromas lead into concentrated flavors of raspberries and blackberries. Well-balanced with firm tannins. Hints of vanilla, cocoa and sweet oak appear on the finish.

    I was very excited to open this wine given the other comments about it and the 90 pt rating. What a disappointment. This didn't have the strong flavor of a cab. It was weak and wasn't any better than what I can find at Trader Joe's for $2 bucks.

    Not know to me for it's wonderful cabernet, this cab comes from Argentina and it a delightful surprise. Full of fruit and very mellow. Light tannins and weaker structure could come from it's age, a 2006 and very young for a cab. Overall, wonderful wine for the price (9 to 12 dollars) and good for everyday.

    Ok, so I'm not a wine expert, but I've had a wide variety. I've had really cheap bottles, and really expensive bottles, so I know what tastes good, and what isn't that fabulous. Trumpter Cabernet seemed a bit weak to me. It almost tasted watery, which isn't what I expect in a cab. I expect bold, crisp and flavorful. With a 90 rating, I had high hopes, but was disapointed.
