Amplio Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Luis Moya of Vinos Unico is really on fire, making wines that continue to impress us for their quality and affordability under his Urbanite Cellars label. His objective is simple: to make the kind of wines he likes, for everyday consumption. Fortunately, we share his tastes! In Cabernet, this translates to a medium-bodied, complex and approachable style, with fruit, acidity, and oak in perfect harmony, moderate alcohol and suave tannins. The 2010 Amplio, a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Merlot, is all blackcurrant, black raspberry, and plum, spiked with sweet and savory spices and a little earthiness on the finish. Crowd-pleasing and food-friendly at once, this is California Cabernet with a European twist. Balanced, delicious, and only 13.5% abv, this Cab is meant to be enjoyed young and perfect for entertaining! [+]
