James Suckling Review
A wine with a lovely complexity and richness. Layered and savory. Full body, velvety tannins and a long finish. Lots of walnut and spice character. A blend of cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and malbec from Altamira and La Consulta.
Wine Advocate Review
The blend changed for the 2013 Beso de Dante, as in this cool vintage there is a majority of Cabernet Sauvignon with 40% Malbec and 10% Cabernet Franc from Vista Flores and Altamira in the Valle de Uco. Lighter and fresher than the 2012, there is a slight reduction that actually adds complexity and gives it more character. A little earthy and showing a mixture of flowers and wild herbs, the palate is medium-bodied with sweet tannins but a serious, dry finish. This is a great blend.
VinoUS Media Review
Bright ruby-red. Very backward, medicinal, Cabernet-dominated aromas of cassis, licorice, menthol and chocolaty oak. Ripe, oaky and rather muscular, conveying excellent grip but a youthfully clenched quality to the black fruit and mint flavors. This serious, chewy, oaky wine possesses good medicinal reserve and its big, broad tannins will need patience. (Stephen Tanzer)
Wine Tasting Notes
Aromas of toasty oak, cassis and smoke. Cascades of red and blackcurrant fruit on the palate. Medium-bodied, but with a succulent, mouthwatering effect. The Cabernet fruit keeps coming and coming. Well-structured and balanced with moderate tannins and a lengthy finish. A wine that combines real class with excitement. Pairs well with any Bordeaux or California Cabernet-friendly dishes such as steak, pork, lamb, and strong cheeses. Can handle any dish with cream or butter sauces.
