90 Pts Jay Miller - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"Ditto for the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Paso de Piedra which received the same elevage. It exhibits an enticing nose of spice box, cassis, black currant, cedar, and tobacco. Elegant on the palate, it has lots of sweet fruit, excellent depth, savory flavors, impeccable balance, and a lengthy finish." 90 Points - Jay Miller - Wine Advocate
"Initial aromas of tire rubber, smoke, black fruits and leather are good and rich, but in a common, understandable way. Smooth and chunky on the palate, with warmth and flavors of blackberry, fig paste and chocolate. Finishes roasted and dark. A thorough Argentine Cabernet with no glaring weaknesses." 90 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"ViÃ±a Alicia has two vineyards: "San Alberto" and "ViÃ±a Alicia", in LujÃ¡n de Cuyo. The geographical location, the type of soil and the regional climate place these lands "among the most wanted lands of the world". Climate is template, Mediterranean, dry and has a wide temperature fluctuation. The bright sun and the scarce rainfalls (180 mm, annual average) add up to the ideal conditions for vine growing."
"The soil origin is alluvial and has a loam-silty to sandy texture. Water for irrigation comes from the snow break in the high mountains of Los Andes mountain range, through a unique irrigation system in the world. All these benefits plus water management according to the actual growing needs in terms of frequency and quantity make LujÃ¡n de Cuyo the First Viticulture Zone in Argentina." -Winemaker
"ViÃ±a Alicia is a winery that combines the wine grower tradition of its makers and the privileged location to get collection wines.
With more than 25 years of research and study to obtain "excellent wines", in 1998 Alicia Mateu Arizu, wife of the well-known "winemaker" Alberto Arizu (Luigi Bosca's alma mater), started the commercialization of the wines that bear her name, along with the youngest of her three sons, Rodrigo Arizu."
Featured as a "chateau", the winery "ViÃ±a Alicia" is surrounded by a 10-hectare vineyard with Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit
Verdot grapes and some vines that are hardly found in Argentine, such as Nebbiolo, Grenache Noir, Carignan, AlbariÃ±o and Savagnin." -Winery
