Winemaker's Notes:

A blend of 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Malbec and 33% Merlot aged for one year in oak barrels. It's a wine with a very neat profile.

Purple red in color with violet and bluish hues. Red fruits and prunes are the dominant aromas that complement the smoky scents delivered by the French oak barrels and add complexity to the wine. In the mouth there is great personality, good body and structure.

Today Nieto Senetiner is dedicated to high-end premium wines and consequently is considered one of the top wineries in Argentina.

In addition to their eponymous line, Nieto Senetiner also offers two other wine series:

Santa Isabel. These high-value wines are expressive and richly fruited, influenced by the cool mountain climate of the Andes, are perfect for every occasion.
