Finca El Origen Estate Blend 2015
|Brand||Finca El Origen|
Wine AdvocateThe light and approachable 2015 Estate Blend is composed of an almost 50/50 mix of Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec, where the two varieties are very nicely integrated. There are no notes of oak and the fruit and flowers are at the forefront. The palate is light and accessible, almost without tannins and with good acidity. It matured for eight months in French and American oak barrels. 54,000 bottles produced.
Wine SpectatorA straightforward red, with drying notes to the raspberry and red plum flavors. Hints of black licorice show on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec.
Wine EnthusiastFurry berry and minty oak aromas are forced. This Cabernet-Malbec blend is saturated and intense to the point of being hard. Medicinal plum and berry flavors are basic, while a peppery shot of oaky mint returns on the finish.
