Notes of dried green herbs and spice extend on the zesty finish. Drink now through 2020. 90 Points

Gold List & Food Match Award: 2012 Decero Cabernet Sauvignon, Remolinos Vineyard

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.

Gold List: 2010 Decero Cabernet Sauvignon, Remolinos Vineyard

‘Restraint, elegance and good value took Decero to the top. ‘Plums, currants and spice on the nose, leading to a very clean, fresh, spicy structure with finesse. Excellent length. Very well made,’ said team leader, Angela Reddin, while Gabor Foth of Hakkasan Hanway Place added, ‘Amazing, a really great expression, with good varietal character, and fresh but intense cassis. It’s a great wine for someone who likes Bordeaux or New World Cabernet blends.’ Go for char-grilled steak.’  – Gold Medal

91 Points: 2010 Decero Cabernet Sauvignon, Remolinos Vineyard

The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon – Remolinos Vineyard is aged in new French barriques (30% new) for 14 months. It offers a refined tobacco and sous-bois scented bouquet that nods towards the Old World. The palate is medium-bodied, with dusty blackberry fruit, bold earthy tannins and a delightful, foursquare finish that you would expect to find on the Left Bank. Fortunately, there is no Left Bank price to contend with! Excellent. Drink now-2017.

90 Points: 2009 Decero Cabernet Sauvignon, Remolinos Vineyard

The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon – Remolinos Vineyard is raised in 30% new oak. It has a very attractive bouquet of blackberry, boysenberry, cedar and vanilla that is both floral and elegant. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, grainy tannins. There is a tightly wound coil of blackberry fruit laced with pain grille and smoke that dovetails into an elegant but weighty finish. This is very well-crafted and deserves two years in bottle. Drink 2014-2022.
