Wine Review - 2019 La Mascota Cabernet Sauvignon: Purple, Woody and Delicious

La Mascota Cabernet Sauvignon Review
Full disclosure here, we absolutely love La Mascota Wines. They make one of our go-to wines in their Cabernet Franc and their Unanime Red is amazing but this Cabernet Sauvignon is also a standout. We particularly like red with both body and balance and this wine delivers that in spades. As it is an Argentinian wine from the Mendoza it has those notes of a good purple wine. Whether steak or tapas this wine will hold up to bold flavours. It looks like Malbec but definitely smells like Cab Sauv.

Sticking your nose in the glass you are immediately hit with violets, toasted oak and blackberries. There is a boldness to the bouquet which doesn't overpower but is strong and consistent even after swirling the wine. The end of that is blueberry jam and leather. 

The wine is dry but not overly so and the there is a tiny amount of residual sugar which allows for some roundness to the tannins which are firm. That's where the balance is really evident and it makes for a great tasting experience. The flavours are stone fruit and more blueberries with dark chocolate and a hint of espresso. Bold and balanced.

   Tasting Notes: Score:
Sight (0-5) Purple as if Malbec but definitely with little transparency.  4.5
Smell (0-5) Violets, toasted oak and blackberries finishing with blueberry jam and leather. 4.5
Taste (0-10) Strong acid on the front-end with notes of beach rock, grapefruit and star fruit. 8.5
  Total: 17.5 / 20 (87.5%)

Food friendly for sure but it really has some elegance that makes it a solid standalone drinker and at $18 locally it can be an everyday choice.

Keep on tasting!

Chris & Shannon
