2014 Susana Balbo Signature Cabernet Sauvignon
by JJ Buckley Fine Wines
It's wines like this that have given Argentina a reputation for undervalued reds that are rich and robust and offer a big bang for the buck. Susan Balbo's Signature cabernet hits the mark on all counts with a 93 point rating and an under $20 price tag!
We recently tasted this here at JJB and it's got everything we look for in a well-crafted Cabernet - full flavors, vibrant acidity and a long, juicy finish. The critics agree by rewarding the Balbo Signature with outstanding praise. James Suckling cuts right to the point, describing the wine as "pretty and drinkable. A pure and delicious wine." Stephen Tanzer notes the "classic" profile and "impressive length" while Robert Parker's Wine Advocate says, "The oak is imperceptible, the ripeness is almost perfect...a balanced, elegant palate with the textbook Cabernet tannins."
This single vineyard Cabernet has the stuffing to age for several years, but you won't want to wait to dive in! At this price, you'll want to load up on this one by the case. Cheers!
