"Solid yet lively, this full-bodied red offers plenty of plum, black cherry, chocolate, light herbal flavors, with round tannins and light yet firm acidity. Structured, but remains accessible. Drink now through 2014. 2,800 cases made." 2009 (web)
Winery: "Visual aspect: Dark purplish red. Nose: Candy and wood berry aromas. Palate: Powerful to the palate, juicy, full and fruity. Velvety, long after-taste with a ripe fruit bouquet."
Wired For Wine: The Mercedes Eguren Cabernet Sauvignon delivers boldness combined with a lovely elegance of fruit and excellent structure. All of these make this Cabernet a terrific match with beef, lamb chops, game and roasted poultry. To start, maybe try a selection of meaty tapas dishes. Pick your favorites! We had braised short ribs with black pepper spaetzle last night, and they would have been perfect with the earthy character of this wine. Simply grilled rib lamb chops with Stilton mashed potatoes are another great choice with this viño, as is a robust, meaty paella. Catch your breaths after all of that delicious, and open another bottle with a Spanish Mahon cow's milk cheese. It's tangy, intense and will be just the ticket to wrap up your meal. Un vaso grande para mi!
