92 Points: 2015 The Owl & The Dust Devil Icon Blend, Remolinos Vineyard

The Remolinos vineyard at Finca Decero is home to a colony of owls who keep pests at bay. They sometimes mistake small dusty whirlwinds, that form in the vineyard from time to time, for pests, swirling down from their perch before returning disappointed shortly thereafter. This is a red blend with more cabernet than usual due to its high quality in 2015. It is 39% Cabernet Sauvignon, 32% Malbec, 19% Petit Verdot and 10% Tannat and is an opaque purple red. The nose is fragrant with blackberry and blueberry fruit with fine well integrated oak spice with floral and mineral tones. The palate is smooth and rich and elegant with firm acidity to balance the abundant fruit and some fine tannin for grip on the finish. Excellent length. Try with a steak. Tasted July 2019.  92 Points
