WINE REVIEW: Zolo 2013 Estate Grown Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, Mendoza, Argentina ($23)



by Andrew Chalk


This is a library selection. This is not the current release but should be seen as indicative of the latter. It suggests that the current release should be purchased.


Zolo, from Bodegas Tapiz, is from Las Llamas Estate in Agrelo, Luján de Cuyo, in Mendoza. That is at an altitude of 2,500 feet. The wine is aged for 12 months in a combination of French and American oak.


Appearance: Intense ruby with blackberry facets;


Nose: Blackcurrant and plum, vanilla from french oak, wood, chocolate. It presents itself at a powerful level.


Palate: Fruit-driven but with well integrated oak from seven years of age. The tannins suggest this wine would keep and improve for another five years.



Sample.
