Powerful, intense, and packing an equal punch on the nose with its pine, mint, eucalyptuses, vanilla and dark berries. Incredibly concentrated, tannic, but quite refined. This is clearly the longest lived wine from the Abreu portfolio. Patience will be needed for this rich, powerful beauty. You?re going to need to give it at least a decade, but you?ll be amply rewarded for your patience. With time, as the tannins soften, this could become a markedly better wine. The wine was produced from a blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Cabernet Franc, 12% Petit Verdot, 12% Merlot and 7% Malbec.
