More about this wine from Montevideo, Uruguay
In general, the wine selection in most grocery stores is uninspired and dominated by bulk produced juice. We'd dare to wage a pretty penny you won't find any vino from Uruguay or the majority of the estate-owned wineries and family businesses we work with from around the world. Enjoy this Cab from a bit off the beaten path.

Neighboring Argentina and perfectly located along the Atlantic Ocean, it shouldn't be a surprise that such high-quality wine comes out of this South American nation. The Traversa family is synonymous with awesome wine in Uruguay and the family has been perfecting their craft for three generations. The Traversa Cabernet is herbal with subtle black pepper on the nose, while the palate is lush with notes of fleshy red fruit, leather, and a touch of vanilla tobacco.

How to drink it

While...

A successful day of thrifting landed you a leather and mahogany arm chair from the furniture section. After you find the perfect spot for your new conversation piece, you lounge back like a baller with a well-deserved libation in hand.

Eating...

The richness and complexity of this Cab Sauv is an ideal pairing mate to succulent red meat. Concoct a flavorful marinade to throw in a sealed bag with a tender cut of skirt steak. Grill on an open flame for a smoky finish.
