Tilia Cabernet Sauvignon (my new favorite)

Tilia, the Latin name for Linden, is a traditional tree in Mendoza whose flowers are used to make a relaxing herbal tea, enjoyed after a long day's work among the vines. The choice of this historic tree to represent their wine reflects a commitment to the traditional way of life in Mendoza, where most farmers bike or walk to work and live with their families near the winery and vineyards.

Tilia is sourced from sustainably farmed vineyards in the Eastern and Southern regions of Mendoza. Tilia Cabernet Sauvignon shows rich red currant and cassis fruit flavors and aromas with a note of cedar and a long, well-structured finish.

Tasting notes
The 2009 Tilia Cabernet Sauvignon has a dark purplecolor with ruby red tones. The nose is full of ripe red fruits, sweet spice and a touch of tobacco. The mouthfeel shows red currant and cassis fruit layered with notes of cedar and espresso bean. The finish is soft and sweet, with finely grained tannins adding structure and length.
