This is a spectacular blend from the heart of Argentinaâ€™s best-known regions. This wine is made by forward thinking Leonardo Quercetti, who as recognized as one of the best for boutique reds. The 2008 Quieto Reserva is sourced from the absolute best barrel selections and from the best vines in his small boutique vineyards. Additionally, the wine spends extra time in oak adding to its richness and complexity. This really is the top of the food chain for a new world blend. One of the things that we love about Leonardo is that is does not solely rely on his Malbec grapes, which is often the case with less ambitious Argentine winemakers. This blend, which is 50% Cab Franc, 36% Malbec and 14% Syrah is stunning.
Tasting Notes: The nose half between fruit and spices. We want the wood subtly accompany the aromas of the grape. The palate is elegant, with a strong tannic structure and acidity. Quiet Book is the result of the search for a full wine, which accompanies wood aromas of the grape, and the passage of time has to improve. The nose stands wood spices and aromas of Cabernet Franc, moderated by the delicacy of Malbec. In the mouth it will take time to discover all the nuances that show, and that will last and evolve for several minutes.
