tim atkin logo 250"There's even less of David Smith's Cabernet Sauvignon than there is of his equally impressive Malbec, but this is a spicy, refined example that shows the classic structure and chalky minerality of Paraje Altamira, with a core of bramble and blackcurrant fruit and deftly interwoven oak."

2017 SonVida Cabernet Sauvignon Mendoza - 91 PTS - WA

wa"The harmonious and classical 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon might not be a fashionable wine, but it feels very honest, somehow old style and traditional, balanced, smooth, focused and clean. It has some 10% Syrah in the blend. It has bright flavors, young and fruit-driven, still very young and primary. Seeing how the 2015 Malbec is aging, I wouldn't be worried to lay the bottles for another couple of years; this Cab has the stuffing and balance. It has moderate alcohol and good freshness and comes through as balanced and gentle. 6,000 bottles produced. - Luis Gutiérrez"

2015 SonVida Cabernet Sauvignon Mendoza - 89 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"(14% alcohol): Good medium red. Musky redcurrant, clove, mocha and soil on the nose, plus a whiff of mesquite-grilled steak. Plush, broad and nicely concentrated, and a bit darker on the palate than it is on the nose, offering hints of cassis and licorice. The dry finish features a firm tannic spine. This may yet expand in bottle. - Stephen Tanzer"
