Montgras Intriga Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  57901

Intriga has been produced since the 2005 vintage, always with grapes from vineyards planted in the Linderos zone 70 years ago. The base of cabernet sauvignon amounts to 82% of the final blend this year, along with cabernet franc and a few drops of petit verdot. It was a cold year with heavy rains (the house's top wine, Máxima, wasn't produced that year) gave rise to fresher, lighter wines, and this Intriga is a good example. The grapes that went into this blend were harvested before the Easter rains, and that made the character much nervier than usual in a medium-bodied wine with deliciously bright acidity. Score - 94.
