About this Wine

We drank this in the office last week and all of us really couldn't quite believe the amount of stuffing, flavour and class in this bottle. It's extremely well priced for what it is. Something of this quality from California would cost double, easily.

Tasting notes

In the past the Gran Lurton has perhaps lacked the profundity of some of Lurton's other flagship Argentine reds (although even say age beautifully - the 2001 Gran Lurton Cabernet Sauvignon, for example, smells and tastes amazing – like a 20-year-old claret – and with the fresh acidity holding the molten fruity funk together), but now whatever tweaks he has made over the past few vintages have had their effect and this is an insuperably elegant New World cabernet with Old World class, a wine which repays interest many times over.

FROM THE PRESS

“Aromas of crushed blackberry, licorice pastille and tobacco leaf. Pliant and very ripe but with nicely integrated acidity accentuating the impression of concentration. Seriously sweet, chewy, dense wine with substantial building, ripe tannins and excellent length. A mouthful of wine for the price.”
James Suckling
