Tasting Notes

This wine displays all the hallmarks of classic McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon – blackcurrant, chocolate with a hint of herbaceousness delivered on a rich palate of dense, firm tannins. But JR Gantos loves his port, and couldn’t help adding a dash (5%) of Touriga Nacional, which gives a varietal floral lift. St Estephe on steroids meets the Douro!


Critical Praise

2009 First Drop Jr Gantos

Drink 2012 - 2019

The 2009 JR Gantos Quinta do Sul is a blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Touriga Nacional. Deep garnet colored with a touch of purple, it presents aromas of ripe mulberries, warm plums and black currant cordial with underlying earthy / meaty hints plus sandalwood and baking spices. Full bodied and densely packed with expressive berry flavors, the very crisp acid provides a nice lift and it’s well textured with medium to firm grainy tannins. The finish is long and spicy. Drinking well now, it should cellar to 2019. Importer: Ronnie Sanders, Vine Street Imports, Philadelphia, PA; www.vsimports.com
