Lamadrid Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
The Cabernet Sauvignon is grown in 100% Agrelo Vineyards 58 years old. It features deep red colors. On the nose, a great variety of ripe red fruits with plum can be appreciated. On the palate, a very expressive and juicy sensation can be perceived with fresh flavors of purple-red fruits, plums, and cassis, remaining long and fresh.
It is a wine with a good structure, elegant to accompany grilled meats and empanadas.

This medium-bodied red is perfumed with floral plum and wild berry notes that make it quite enjoyable now, with an abundantly spiced finish and fine tannins.
Lamadrid Estate Wines comes from a delicate balance between the work at the vineyard and the vinification process. There are dedicated people in both fields and Guillermo García Lamadrid and Hector Durigutti, Master Winemaker and General Manager, devote a lot of time and effort in these areas. Durigutti and García Lamadrid have developed a close working relationship and partnership crucial for the early success of our Lamadrid brand.
By far the largest and best-known winemaking province in Argentina, Mendoza is responsible for over 70% of the country’s enological output. Set in the eastern foothills of the Andes Mountains, the climate is dry and continental, presenting relatively few challenges for viticulturists during the growing season. Mendoza, divided into several distinctive sub-regions, including Luján de Cuyo and the Uco Valley, is the source of some of the country’s finest wines.
For many wine lovers, Mendoza is practically synonymous with Malbec. Originally a Bordelaise variety brought to Argentina by the French in the mid-1800s, here it found success and renown that it never knew in its homeland where a finicky climate gives mixed results. Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot and Pinot Noir are all widely planted here as well (and sometimes even blended with each other or Malbec). Mendoza's main white varieties include Chardonnay, Torrontés, Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon.
A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
