Finca Decero 'Remolinos Vnyd' Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
Not Vintage Specific
Item Number: 32004
Wine Spectator 91 (Smart Buy) -
“Big and rich, with zesty acidity behind the dark plum, blackberry and dark currant flavors. Chocolate nib notes show midpalate, while creamy accents fill the pure, fruit-filled finish.”
Wine & Spirits 90
From a vintage plagued by rain, this is a lush, gentle cabernet sauvignon. A year in oak barrels has turned the tannins to suede and added a brown-sugar sweetness to the dark fruit, but the wood doesn’t mask the wine’s black-currant fragrance or earthy detail. It’s ready now, a firm, medium-bodied cabernet for a beef braise.

Decero Cabernet was handpicked April 19th through May 3rd, 2015. This wine has an elegant structure which is enhanced by the 14 months spent in french oak barrels.
Within a few vintages, Finca Decero has become recognized not only for having one of the highest quality vineyards in all of Mendoza, but also for catapulting into an elite group of the most highly regarded producers in Argentina. Once a desolate piece of land in the foothills of the Andes, absent of everything but shrubs, Finca Decero is now a one-of-a-kind vineyard where each vine is nurtured by hand and the winemaking is without compromise.
All fruit is sourced from the estate's Remolinos Vineyard, which at 3,500 feet, is the highest vineyard in Agrelo, characterized by sandy clay loams over gravels. Yields are around 3.5-4 tons an acre. Clusters are handpicked and thinned to 1-2 clusters per shoot.
The clusters are selected on a sorting table prior to destemming, and individual berries are selected on a sorting table after destemming. The must underwent a 3-7 day cold soak, followed by a 10 day fermentation in small wide stainless steel tanks at 82-86 degrees and finally a 15-18 day extended maceration period. The wine was gently basket pressed before going into French oak barrels (30% new) for malolactic fermentation and 14 months maturation.
2015 Decero Cabernet Sauvignon has classic notes of cassis, cedar and graphite bound together by structural tannins enhanced by 14 months in French oak barrels. An elegant, well-structured classic style of Cabernet Sauvignon.
