About

"Not just ripe blackberry fruits and fine oak, but also hints of fennel seed and celery root, which means it's far removed from being a Mendoza high-end red clone. Ripe, suave and elegant with a long finish. Delicious now, but should hold for some years. A blend of malbec, cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, merlot and petit verdot."

Product Description:

"Colour: Ruby red colour with brownish edges. Medium intensity.

Nose: The complexity of the varietal composition of this wine shows in the nose aromas of red and black fruit, spices like white pepper, clove and cardamom. Herbal notes of eucalyptus, thyme and rosemary. The wood ageing rents notes of cocoa and vanilla.

Mouth: Intense wine at the entrances. It reaches all its volume with a high impact in the middle palate, exhibiting round tannins as the result of the five varietals. Long and lingering finish with a slight herbaceous note in the end." - Winery
