Michel Torino Cabernet Sauvignon
The 2014 Cabernet has blackberry, pepper and paprika aromas, with nut and toasty oak notes. In the mouth, there are red pepper, raspberry and blackcurrant flavors, with vanilla and tobacco notes from oak aging on the long finish.
Michel Torino is a brand of Bodega El Esteco of Cafayate, one of the wine companies that are part of Grupo Penaflor, the Argentine giant that figures among the top of the world’s most significant players. 6,300 ha of vineyards are owned between the five wineries in Grupo Penaflor, and fruit is also sourced under contract. El Esteco was founded in 1892 and is the main winery in Cafayate owning 750 ha of vines at the high altitude of 1,700 m a.s.l. in the Calchaqui Valley. The bodegas has several tiers, and I review a selection from the varietal ‘Michel Torino Coleccion’ range, the premium ‘Don David’ tier, named after David Michel and the top end ‘Ciclos’ and ‘Altimus’ labels.
