2018 Bressia Monteagrelo Cabernet Sauvignon - 90 PTS - TA

tim atkin logo 250"Youthful, assertive and intensely oaked, this stylish Cabernet Sauvignon combines fruit from Agrelo and Gualtallary in the classic Mendoza two-step. Smoky, dense and quite firm, with damson and cassis fruit, it’s a wine with one eye on the future."

2017 Bressia Monteagrelo Cabernet Sauvignon - 89 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"Bright red-ruby. Pungent peppery, herbal lift to the aromas of redcurrant, raspberry and tobacco leaf. Surprisingly sweet on entry, but the intense red berry and spice flavors are energized by firm acidity and an element of mountain herbs in the mid-palate. This firm yet immediately accessible Cabernet Sauvignon has less of the peppery quality--and more obvious fruit sweetness--than the Cabernet Franc. Finishes with a fine dusting of tannins and repeating notes of herbs and pepper. (14.5% alcohol). - Stephen Tanzer"

2016 Bressia Monteagrelo Cabernet Sauvignon - 88 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"(14.5% alcohol): Slightly dull dark red. Pungent aromas of redcurrant, plum, licorice, tomato leaf, green pepper and herbs. Offers a fine-grained texture but less sweetness than the 2016 Cabernet Franc, showing more of the vintage's greenness and lacking the lift of the Cab Franc. Delivers good texture but doesn't quite come alive. Finishes with rather easygoing tannins. - Stephen Tanzer"

2012 Bressia Monteagrelo Cabernet Sauvignon - 89 PTS - WA

wa89"The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Monteagrelo from Agrelo and Luján de Cuyo grapes, matured in oak barrels for 15 months. The profile is quite classic with blackberries, cedar wood, a touch of graphite and ripe and juicy touches. The medium-bodied palate is serious with grainy, fine tannins. It is balanced and drinkable. - Luis Gutierrez"

2010 Bressia Monteagrelo Cabernet Sauvignon - 88 PTS - WA

Wine Advocate 88+ PtsAged 15 months in a combination of American and French oak, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Monteagrelo is more backward than the 2011 Malbec. It possesses a dense ruby/purple color along with notes of creme de cassis, tobacco leaf, cigar smoke, spice and vanillin. Medium to full-bodied with light-to-moderate tannin, good density and richness, it should drink well for 6-8 more years.
