Tapiz - 2014 - Tapiz Las Notas de Jean Claude San Pablo Vineyard - 750 ml.
Sub Region: Valle de Uco
Varietal: Merlot - Petit Verdot, Cabernet Sauvignon - Cabernet Franc
Vintage: 2014 - Size: 750 ml. - Type: RedThis specimen expresses the maximum potential of intensity, fineness, elegance and harmony of the nose, generated by our terroir. On the nose, notes of fresh red fruits, raspberries, cassis and truffles stand out, accompanied by delicate notes of spice. Its passage through oak brings aromas of coffee and chocolate amalgamated with the fruity notes typical of this San Pablo variety. In the mouth it is intense, with sweet and elegant tannins. A long ending, hard to forget. A wine that represents the art of precision, from the vine to the glass.
The super-classical 2014 Las Notas de Jean Claude is a superb red blend of 84% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot from their vineyard in San Pablo in the Uco Valley at some 1,350 meters in altitude. This is taken from a specific plot planted 19 years ago and selected by consultant Jean-Claude Berrouet of Petrus fame. This wine is all about elegance, balance and finesse and goes well beyond the varieties, which play a secondary role. The palate reveals very fine tannins and superb acidity; it's ripe and full of flavors and nuance. Beautiful. 13,500 bottles produced. It was bottled in May 2016.

Juicy and very polished with totally resolved tannins that are integrated into the wine, giving it a savory and delicious mouth feel. Tangy and fresh, too. Merlot with a touch of cabernet franc, cabernet sauvignon and petit verdot. Drink and enjoy.
