The 2012 Q Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of grapes from La Consulta and Gualtallary in the Uco Valley, a ripe yet balanced red, with freshness and minerality along with grainy tannins, good balance, and aromas and flavors of plums and tobacco. Quite drinkable, it is a Cabernet that would do very well with asado. Drink now-2016.

Finely crafted, with touches of elegance and plenty of freshness to the plum, cherry tart and boysenberry flavors, accented by forest floor notes. Mineral and spice details fill the lively finish. Drink now through 2019.
90 Points Wine Spectator 9/15
 
Mild aromas of red-black fruits with wood mint and a hint of sweetness.  There is mild ripe black cherry and plum fruit with medium body, medium+ tannin, oak and pepper on the finish.  It was definitely better with Ghirardelli chocolate.
