Producer : Altar Uco
Region : Uco Valley, Argentina
The unoaked and peppery 2021 Edad Moderna Cabernet Sauvignon shows restraint and freshness and opens up nicely in the glass to reveal varietal typicity, moderate alcohol at 13.5%, purity of aromas and flavors and the textbook grainy tannins from the variety. It has black fruit and notes of freshly cracked peppercorns and is a lot more austere and with contained ripeness than the 2018 I tasted last time. It fermented and matured in raw concrete for some eight months. It has a medium to full-bodied palate with textbook Cabernet tannins and the chalkiness from the soils. It's balsamic and has freshness despite not having very high acidity. 4,000 bottles were filled in October 2019.
