90+ Cellars Lot 53 Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 | Stash away at least one case!
Be sure to stash away at least one case of this powerful 90+ Cellars Lot 53 Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 for 2-3 years. Upon opening, my first thought was: do I really want to drink a 2017 High-elevation Cabernet in 2019? Remembering it was a ‘crowd pleaser’ – wine speak for decent, but not for my cellar – I pushed on. At first, it was exactly as expected. A bit flat but pleasant. 30 minutes later something started to happen. And at two hours my taste buds started to really pay attention to the emerging depth, power, and finesse. Lay it down until at least 2021. Drink through 2025+ with potential until 2028. If you have a cellar, this is the definition of a ‘steal.’
90+ Cellars Lot 53 Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 presents a melody of black currants and red cherries. While on the palate, you’ll taste juicy, dark berry fruit along with a trickle of sweet spice and savory plums. Serve with grilled rib eye, portabella mushrooms, and hearty meat dishes. 91WBOTD

High Elevation Mandoza Cabernet Sauvignon
While Argentina may be best known for its Malbec, the country produces a diversity of wines. And Lot 53 is the perfect introduction to the power, potential and crowd-pleasing nature of Argentine Cabernet.
This wine is made by a well-regarded family-owned winery in Mendoza. The grape vines are located more than 800 meters above sea level and are irrigated from the mineral-rich water from the Andes mountains. The wine is fermented in stainless steel and then aged for 6 months in a blend of new and recently used French oak.
