Incredible pedigree for a wine priced under $15, the Tapiz Alta Cabernet Sauvignon is made by Jean-Claude Berrouet, who's made two of the most famous wines in the world: Chateau Petrus in France and Dominus in Napa Valley. So good for the price, James Suckling previously listed the Tapiz Alta as his #1 wine "50 Best Values Under $50." The 2020 continues the amazing streak of 94+ point wines with ripe flavors of black cherry, blackberries, and cassis with smooth tannins and a lingering sweetness of dark fruit. The Wine Advocate calls the Tapiz Alta Collection "a textbook, cold-climate Cabernet Sauvignon," which allows the flavors to develop while keeping the alcohol in check. One of our favorite cellar defenders, Jean-Claude Berrouet has done a masterful job in creating one of the best value Cabernet Sauvignon in the world. Don't miss his latest 94+ Point vintage!
"This is fresh and aromatic on the nose, with notes of cassis and blackberries, as well as hints of cumin, cedar wood and crushed stones. Medium-bodied, packed with polished tannins. Shows bright acidity and generous fruit. Flavorful and long with some walnut iat the end. Try now, but better after 2023." James Suckling, 94 Points
