Araujo Altagracia Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
At first, the nose reveals rose petal notes with a hint of peony, then it opens up with blackcurrant, dark cherry aromas and a pinch of licorice. The mouthfeel is unctuous and succulent with a savory black fruit sustained by tight tannins and a finish on blond tobacco notes. This may be the finest Altagracia to date, deeper and more concentrated than 2012, with a darker character and a great ageing poten- tial. It is in essence the more approachable little brother of the Eisele Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon.
