A unique, round and balanced wine. With a good finish and persistence that is worth tasting.
The path of wine provides discoveries and astonishing. Many wineries offer products and some simply invite us to discover a different, and capable dazzles us.
This was the experience with a bottle of Finca Las Moras. San Juan winery that carries followers and detractors. Habitually in it I had not found outstanding. Today I tasted Paz, a bivarietal wine 2013. Half Cabernet Sauvignon, half Cabernet Franc. Its label dictates 15 months of French Oak of first use and is in itself a great promise.
The vineyards from which this blend is obtained are located in the Pedernal Valley and Tulum Valley between 650 and 1350 meters above sea level. With warm days and cold nights that allow to obtain tasty and spicy cabernets. With a recommended storage time of 4 years, 2013, came the time to be drunk. And the recommendation typed on the label is the answer to the rhetorical question of every wine collector. Will this be the time to open it? With a resting time in the glass it gives off balanced aromas of red fruits and green pepper. Not very common in these vines. Tears run through the glass and show its passage through the barrel and its 14 degrees of alcohol. What's different comes in the mouth. It is there where I found a unique experience. Exemplary tannic with a good level of astringency. Flavors of red fruits, leather and ashes ... but something stood out from the rest and there got the plus. The chocolate notes were both persistent and pleasant. And the mere fact of thinking that a grape can develop this type of flavours similar to the originals is magical.
In short, a unique, round and balanced wine. With a good finish and persistence that is worth trying.
