Tasting Notes and Description

Salentein Portillo Cabernet Sauvignon is an alluring and vibrant wine that showcases the unique terroir and winemaking expertise of Bodegas Salentein. Situated in the Uco Valley of Argentina, a region acclaimed for its high-altitude vineyards and ideal grape-growing conditions, Bodegas Salentein is committed to producing wines that express the distinctive character of this exceptional terroir. The Portillo line, named after the mountain pass that connects the Andes with the Uco Valley, is a collection of wines that offer remarkable quality and value, with the Cabernet Sauvignon being a standout example of this commitment.

Upon tasting the Salentein Portillo Cabernet Sauvignon, one is greeted with a lively and inviting flavor profile. The wine opens with aromas of ripe red and dark fruits, notably red currants, plums, and a hint of black cherry, all complemented by subtle notes of green pepper, a characteristic feature of Cabernet Sauvignons from cooler climates. These are further enhanced by hints of spice and a gentle touch of oak. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied with a refreshing acidity and smooth tannins, making it approachable and enjoyable. The fruit flavors are well-balanced with the wine's natural structure, leading to a pleasing and persistent finish.

This Cabernet Sauvignon pairs excellently with a variety of foods. It complements grilled and roasted meats like beef, lamb, or pork, making it a perfect choice for barbecues and hearty dinners. It also pairs well with pasta dishes with rich sauces, aged cheeses, and can even enhance the flavors of spicier cuisines. Vegetarian options such as grilled vegetables, robust lentil or bean stews, and dishes with earthy mushrooms also pair wonderfully with this wine. Salentein Portillo Cabernet Sauvignon is more than just a wine; it's a testament to the Uco Valley's winemaking potential, ideal for those who appreciate a wine that is both expressive of its origins and delightful to the palate.
