  • I brought this wine back from Mendoza and boy did I pick a good time to drink it. Popped and poured. Ruby red in color with ripe dark red fruit on the nose. A soft and elegant wine with just a bit of jamminess to the red fruit plus a hint of spice. Finishes clean and long. This seems like the peak for this wine, so drink soon.

  • Beautiful example of a new world cab franc. Nice balance and complexity. Berries, spices, minerals. Drinking very well now but still have some time to go.

  • Opened for an hour. Bitter chocolate, white pepper, mineral, bay leaf, red pepper and blueberry. Dusty tannins and a medium finish. There's a lively acidity and agility, yet thick. Drink now - 2017.

  • Orta koyulukta yakut renginde. Aromatik burnu olgun, reçelimsi siyah meyvelerden zengin, baharatlı ve domates, tatlı kırmızı biber benzeri kokular da taşıyor. Yumuşak ve narin damağı dengeli, yuvarlak ve olgun tanenleri asidi ile uyumlu, orta uzunluktaki bitişinde meyveli yapısına belirgin bir mineralite eşlik ediyor.Pulenta Estate'in 980 m rakımlı kendi bağlarından gelen bu %100 Cabernet Franc sepajı 12 ay yeni Fransız meşe fıçılarda olgunlaştıktan sonra şişelenmiş.

  • 100% Cabernet Franc from Pulenta Estate's own vineyards of 980 m altitude in Mendoza. This has been bottled after 12 months in new French oak. Medium ruby in colour. The opulent nose displays ripe, jammy black fruit along with sweet red pepper, tomato and spice notes. Nicely balanced with a soft, elegant structure, ripe and round tannins with a good, crisp acidity. The aftertaste is fruity with a mineral edge.
