Rio Negro, Patagonia, Argentina
Humberto Canale Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is a beautiful red wine gem from the southern reaches of Argentina. The Canale Family vineyards in the Rio Negro Valley of Patagonia are among the most southerly in the world. A dry growing season with hot days and cold nights helps produce wonderfully ripe and generous fruit. The grapes were picked by hand in mid-April and delivered to the winery, just 1 km away. Careful selection with an extremely low yield of 8500 kgs per hectare assures maximum concentration of fruit.
Humberto Canale Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is intense garnet in color with brick hues and silky yet robust tannins. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, it has bright acidity and a nose of blackberries, black and red currants and a hint of green bell peppers. On the palate, the black fruits are joined by notes of vanilla and chocolate. The wine was partially aged for 12 months in American and French oak casks. Well structured and complex, it offers beautiful balance, silky texture and a smooth, lingering finish.
