Casarena Icono 2012
There is a new red that goes straight to the top of the range ... Malbec represents 60% of the blend, and is fermented in whole clusters in open oak barrels. The rest is destemmed Cabernet Sauvignon that ferments in rolling oak barrels. The wines are blended before malolactic fermentation which is carried out in cement vats. The wine is then put back in barrel where it matured for 18 months. It's very floral and there are no oak aromas. With time the wine develops unusual aromas reminiscent of green tea ... The wine is medium-boded, with very fine tannins and refreshing acidity. It even makes you salivate, which is a triumph for location and vintage. 4,500 bottles produced. Drink date: 2015-2020. Score - 95. (Luis Gutiérrez,, Aug. 27, 2015)
