Reviews

  • "90 points. As with most of the high-volume cuvées, the 2016 Felino Cabernet Sauvignon mixes grapes from different origins, mainly Luján de Cuyo and Valle de Uco. It's very varietal and pungent, with strong herbal and peppery aromas, quite classical (what comes to mind is that it feels more "European"), with less volume and more tension, good freshness and the legendary refined tannins from the variety. Clean, focused and fresh. Another wine showing good progression." (Wine Advocate)
  • "88 points. Bright medium red with ruby highlights. Aromas of sour cherry, currant, tobacco leaf and cocoa powder. A suave midweight with a restrained sweetness to its currant, cherry and spice flavors. Nicely balanced, supple wine with subtle Cabernet peppery herbacity supported by ripe fruit. Finishes with slightly dusty tannins and a lingering herbal character. This wine was clearly aided by its Uco Valley component (it also includes fruit from Luján de Cuyo)." (vinous)
