First and foremost, this is an earth-driven, very mineral wine. Mushrooms and potting soil are quite apparent on the nose, but fade to the background across the palate. Leather, berries and cinnamon came to life once tasted, along with wet wood and dark chocolate (indicating mature barrels were used in production). Tremendously approachable for such a young Cabernet.
This full-bodied red wine is treasured for its supple red-and-black berry flavors and herbaceous green peppercorn notes. It has deep red, deep and brilliant blue notes with an aroma of red fruits with hints of peppery spice and a variety show. The mouth is soc and well balanced with wood assembled barrels which provides toast and smoke on the continuing nature of the variety.
Fully clear and slight bodied, this artisanal Tequila is derived from 100% organic Blue Agave and distilled in copper stills. Proudly produced in Jalisco, Mexico by a 4th generation, women-owned family business. It is deeply rooted in the Amatitan (birthplace of Tequila) and Guadalajara. With citrus fruit-forward and sweet, herbaceous, Earthiness notes, this Tequila is perfect on it's own or in a cocktail.
This wine is extremely fruit forward, conceivably due to the young age. The nose is bursting with boysenberries, blackberries and cherries. Some secondary aromas exist and include fresh ground pepper and red roses. This wine is very interesting and I’d like to see how it develops over the next few years. Still young and very powerful, I would pair with steak or grilled sausages.

Winery: Ponte 1948
The grapes were selected from premium vineyard blocks in the Coastal region. The vines were grown and managed for a low yield to offer optimum quality. le for such a young Cabernet. Succulent tropical fruit aromas like white pear, guava and kiwifruit are all prominent on the nose and follow through to the palate with a crisp and zingy finish. Enjoy this easy-drinking, unwooded wine as an aperitif or paired with summer favourites such as creamy goat’s cheese, summer salads, sushi, pasta or pizzas.
