The 2011 Trumpeter Cabernet Sauvignon is aged in French oak for nine months. It has fresh, clean dark cherry and boysenberry fruit. The palate is nicely balanced on the entry, with rounded blackberry fruit laced with cedar and a touch of dry tobacco. It is well-defined, the oak judiciously integrated with a refined finish. For the price, this comes highly recommended. Drink now-2015.
There's an earthy edge to his medium-bodied Cab, which features currant, plum and spice notes. Grippy tannins.
This is dark, smoky and minty at first, turning more earthy, leathery and warm as it opens. It feels big and sort of tough, with smoked, roasted flavors of savory berry and rooty cola. It finishes tannic and rubbery.
Juicy berry fruit aromas lead into concentrated flavors of raspberries and blackberries. Well-balanced with firm tannins. Hints of vanilla, cocoa and sweet oak appear on the finish.
Bodega La Rural was founded in 1885 by Don Felipe Rutini. From Italy, he brought with him his oenological degree and the vast experience he had acquired from his father's vineyards. The first vines were planted in Maipu, Mendoza and the winery was installed with French Oak barrels and the best in modern machinery. Under his work ethic, "Labor and Perseverance," four generations of the Rutini family continued his legacy. They brought together hard work and the most advanced technologies in viticulture in the search for excellence in oenology.
Today, the winery boasts stainless steel tanks, two pneumatic presses, imported crushers, vacuum pumps and filters, in addition to 500 new French Oak barrels. Over the last couple of years, the Trumpeter wines have soared to new heights in popularity in the United States. Offering four varietals: a Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, and Malbec, Bodega La Rural has crafted new wines with attractive new labels that have created quite a stir in the media. These wines have received praise in many respected publications ranging from the Wine Spectator and Wine & Spirits magazine to the Washington Post daily newspaper.
Rutini Wines currently owns estates in five different areas of Mendoza, including Maipú, Rivadavia, La Consulta, Altamira and Tupungato, with a total of 255 hectares under vine. This diverse source of vineyard sites allows them to cultivate each individual grape variety in the area that offers the best suited growing conditions. Of particular value is the source of old vines in the highly coveted region of La Consulta, where many believe the best Malbec grapes in Mendoza are being grown today. Here the vines reach ages of 65 years. The concentrated yields produced by these vines, combined with the high altitude, cool air and intense sunshine in this region, create grapes with rich fruit character, deep color and smooth, ripe tannins.
