Notes From The Winemaker:
The Angulo Innocenti Cabernet Sauvignon shows that Mendoza and in particular La Consulta is not only about Malbec. With a dark ruby red color, the wine shows concentrated red fruit flavors with great complexity of light mint, sweet spice and finely grained tannins. A new addition to the expression of the La Consulta terroir.

Ratings & Reviews
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from the estate vineyards at La Consulta. It has a classic, ripe Cabernet nose mixing leafy aromas with notes of cherries in liqueur and plenty of spices and hints of graphite and cedar wood denoting some sweetness. The palate is medium to full-bodied with plenty of herbal flavors and very polished tannins. A mainstream Cabernet from Mendoza. 60,000 bottles." - Luis Gutierrez (Aug 2015)
"Good dark red. Slightly leafy aromas of currant, plum, truffle and game. Fat, plush and sweet; just this side of stewy. No shortage of fruit here but a bit too easygoing and in need of more complexity. Tannins are nicely ripe, though." - Stephen Tanzer (January 2015)
