An homage to the original Bordeaux blend of Malbec and Cabernet, this powerful wine has gripping tannins and great freshness and length.
Aromas of cassis with mint notes and oak. Medium-bodied and classically structured with good density. The Cabernet fruit melds seamlessly with the Malbec, creating a well-structured and balanced blend with moderate tannins and a lengthy finish.
This blend will pair well with any Cab-friendly dishes such as steak, pork, lamb, and strong cheeses. It can handle any dish with cream or butter sauces.
The Cabernet Sauvignon that represents 50% of the blend of the 2019 Beso de Dante (the rest is 40% Malbec and 10% Cabernet Franc) was immediately recognizable in the shape of herbal and spicy notes, vibrant acidity and fine-grained tannins. Like many reds here, it combines power and finesse, showing good balance.Wine Advocate March 2021
The ripe nose features plum jam, Maraschino cherry and hints of violet, cedar and vanilla. Juicy with a terse, voluminous texture, the aging process comes to the fore in the mouth alongside expansive, packaged freshness. The finish lingers at length.Vinous November 2021
