James Suckling – 15 de febrero de 2020
Fresh, leafy notes to the cassis aromas, but not over the top, with roasted spices and cedar. Fresh and juicy on the palate with fresh, blue-fruit flavors, a spicy-oak kick and linear, full tannin. Drink or hold. 92 Points

Aromatic and energetic. Quite light tannins – more refined tannins than I would have expected from a 2018. Quite silky. Sweet and juicy – all pleasure!

Gold List & Food Match Award: 2012 Decero Cabernet Sauvignon, Remolinos Vineyard
Sommelier Wine Awards 2014 – 1 de julio de 2014
Clinching top honors, 2012 Decero Cabernet was the only wine from Argentina to be awarded the prestigious Food Match Award.
Vibrancy and real food-friendliness gave Decero not just Gold but the newly created Burger Food Match award. Hardly surprising, given the judges comments. Excellent red fruit, with a vanilla tone, this is lively and spicy, said team leader Sarah Jane Evans MW. Rich and silky with notable tannins, added an equally approving Sandro Lyhs of Oxo Tower Bar of this dense but approachable Cabernet. Equally happy being sipped solo or accompanying chargrilled fare.
