Winemaker's Notes:

A native French variety, this grape extinguished almost completely after the great phylloxera plague. It resurfaced in Chile at the end of the XX century, where it breeds wines of intense color, soft and round tannins, and restrained acidity. Characteristic aromas of chocolate, coffee and, in a subtler way, moist soil.
