Lexicon Cabernet Sauvignon
Lexicon wines
Argentina - Mendoza    - Lujan de Cuyo   

Lexicon varietal wines are carefully selected by Fran Kysela to show the essence of each variety, along with its terroir of origin, both of which are essential elements of a good wine.

A strong sense of berry comes with an elegant touch of oak and vanilla aromas. The palate is fruity, but the tannins are quite present. The flavors are classic for a Mendoza Cabernet Sauvignon wine - plum, dark berry, fig cookie and chocolate - with a lengthy finish.

2020 Lexicon Cabernet Sauvignon - 92 PTS - GOLD - BTI

bti gold 2022"Violet color. Aromas and flavors of chocolate covered berries, mocha nuts, and purple flowers with a satiny, vibrant, fruity medium-to-full body and a seamless, interesting, medium-long finish displaying accents of chocolate orange peels, berry chutney on raisin toast, and spiced nuts with well-integrated, chewy tannins and moderate oak flavor. A juicy, chewy, fruit-forward Cabernet that is sure to please."

2014 Lexicon Cabernet Sauvignon - 88 PTS - WA

wa88"The 2014 Lexicon Cabernet Sauvignon shows the Cabernet's more chocolaty, tobacco leaf and black and red currant side and has a similar color to its stable mates. The wine boasts loads of fruit, good texture and length. All of these wines probably have more aging potential than I would risk, but they are clearly meant to be drunk when released, and no doubt will hold onto their fruity intensity for several years, if not longer."
- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (March 2016), 88 pts - Excellent Wine Values for Under $25
