Winemaker's Notes:

Very intense and fruit driven with a nose that integrates layers of violet, lavender, red berries, licorice and chocolate. Ample structure and full body.

Suggested pairings: Argentine Asado, grilled beef, Carbonara sauce pasta, spicy beef based dishes, soft paste aged cheeses.

"Aromas of black cherries and chocolate back up the warmth of this wine. Its texture has been softened by oak--a gentle partner for liver pate." 88 Points
