92 - 95 Points Antonio Galloni
The 2014 Cerro Sur is a more than worth follow up to the 2013. Dark red and black stone fruit, graphite, espresso, menthol, pencil shavings and crushed rocks are all beautifully delineated. Harmonious and well balanced for such a young wine, the 2014 offers considerable potential. The Cerro Sur is a bit linear today, but it possesses tremendous energy throughout. The blend is 67% Cabernet Franc and 33% Cabernet Sauvignon.
The driving force of the 2014 vintage is the combination of density, freshness, and balance. The most recent offering of Cerro Sur shows lively energy and notes of bing cherry, plum clafoutis, black tea and orange oil. The generosity of the wine is persistent; deeply layered, it opens to flavors of cinnamon, lavender, cocoa, cardamom, and candied ginger. This flavor intensity carries through on the finish; a complex wine, with a long life ahead of it.
85% Cab Franc, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon
