James Suckling writes:  Plenty of sweet tobacco with some wet-earth and blackcurrant aromas that follow through to a full body with chewy tannins and lots of fruit and structure at the end. 34% cabernet sauvignon, 33% cabernet franc and 33% merlot. Better after 2023.  - James Suckling 91

Luis Gutiérrez writes:  The 2018 Finca Libertad blends approximately equal parts of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot, and it's very peppery and minty, balsamic with high ripeness but also freshness, quite classical with dusty, fine-grained tannins and an austere mouthfeel.   - Robert Parker Wine Advocate 90

Alistair Cooper MW, Dirceu Vianna Junior MS, David Williams write:  Vibrant blue fruit, garrigue, red berries and spice. On the palate it is ripe and juicy underpinned by firm fine grain tannins.  - Decanter

We met Federico Benegas through our friends, owners of Cavas Wine Lodge in Mendoza in 2005.  Federico is one of our favorite people, generous and joyful, his winery makes some of the not only the best values but consistently delicious, harmonious and balanced wines.  Just becoming available again at our shop this is a not to be missed "Bordeaux Blend” that we know you will thank us for introducing.  - Dorothy & Bernie “Follow the Drinker” ®
